In April 2012 the work of the Graduate Studio I final projects will be exhibited in the Civic Design Center in Charleston SC.
The work was produced in a ten-week graduate studio at the Architecture program.
The focus of the studio was to explore the west side entry corridor to the Charleston Peninsula. Students researched the potentials and problems of this area and four different teams generated four projects. The proposals examine the actual entry experience as well as the relationship of the immediate and extended context at this site. Ideas explored include repairing the urban fabric, utilizing the water front for the city, sustainable use of the proposed underground storm water flood control system, and creating a vibrant urban development that connects the medical district and the proposed Horizon development.
The projects are response to the dynamics of human life and the connection between historic and contemporary, conceptual and experimental, natural and man-made.
