3B & Studio 4: Third-Year Collaborative Studio

ARC 3546: Studio 3B and BCS 3126: Studio 4
Third-year, Spring Semester

Third-year architecture and building construction science studios join in the spring for collaborative work.

The spring 2023 collaborative studio, the PCI Foundation Studio, worked on the design of a precast parking garage for the MSU Innovation Hub in downtown Starkville. The project included not only a parking garage for the Hub and downtown Starkville but also street-level retail and street improvements along Jackson Street and a public "connector" space between the existing Hub building and the new parking garage building. Some of the collaborative teams chose to create a public gathering space on the roof to provide much-needed event space in downtown Starkville. Students were required to develop sustainable strategies including rainwater collection and treatment, wastewater recycling and treatment, and renewable energy along with passive design strategies using solar and wind orientation and integration.
