UMA architecture exhibit features innovative projects by students

0

AUGUSTA — The University of Maine at Augusta will host a juried student exhibition featuring the work of its Architecture students March 3-28, in the Charles Danforth Gallery. There will be an opening reception from 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday, March 6.

The student projects include design ideas for a music lab for Water Street specifically aimed at engaging Augusta’s downtown context and revitalization; a mixed-use housing project for the elderly sited on Water Street in Hallowell; thesis projects done in collaboration with the city of Bath; measured drawings of the Lithgow Library; and the UMA Greenhouse project done in collaboration with UMA’s Office of Civic Engagement.

Juried by Professors Emeritus Judith Bing and J. Brooke Harrington, and the practicing architect Tobias Gabranski, approximately 20-25 projects of the 60 students enrolled in UMA’s Architecture programs will be represented in the exhibit. The exhibition is a chance for students from UMA’s new Bachelor of Architecture degree to showcase their work since the program began in the fall of 2013. Previously, UMA offered a successful four-year Bachelor of Arts in Architecture; the new B.Arch program is a five-year professional architecture degree program that provides students with a path towards architectural licensure.

The Charles Danforth Gallery is in Jewett Hall. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursdays; and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Fridays.
