BGSU/UT Final Project Exhibit (OWE Architecture)

Screen Shot 2017-11-29 at 1.41.03 PM.png

Please join BGSU and UT architecture students on Friday, December 8 for a community exhibition of their final projects related to the Old West End Neighborhood.

In fall 2017, the Bowling Green State University senior architecture students have worked on community-based visioning projects in the Old West End Neighborhood and larger Toledo area.  The urbanism studio was conducted in a close collaboration with the University of Toledo's urban design class led by Dr. Sujata Shetty.  Student projects have integrated urban agriculture and blight remediation concepts, coupled with focused research on larger public policy issues associated with and impacting their designs.  

In addition to a formal review, their concepts will be exhibited for the community on Friday December 8 from 5:30-7pm at the Collingwood Arts Center Pride Room, 2413 Collingwood Blvd.
