Architecture and Environmental Design Faculty Recognized with National Award

asca-awardThe Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) awarded the 2016-17 Architectural Education – Diversity Achievement Award to Gabriel Kroiz, Pavlina Ilieva and Adam Bridge, a collaborative team of faculty and administrators of the Undergraduate Architecture and Environmental Design Program and Morgan State University’s School of Architecture and Planning, for their work on the Beginning Design Curriculum at Morgan.

Created to reflect the HBCU experience and leverage diverse body of students representing various minority communities, the Beginning Design Curriculum reconsiders the role of design education and makes a value proposition that actively seeks to develop design leadership from a diverse talent base for the diverse challenges we face today. Since Fall 2010, the curriculum has evolved into key trajectories aimed at developing the skills necessary to observe, record, analyze, vision and act on the built environment by challenging students to source knowledge from their immediate environment and from an inclusive field of practitioners, thinkers and activist.
