Our Calvin & Tina Tyler Hall Student Services Center for Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland has been selected as a finalist for this year’s Architizer A+Awards.
Now in its 9th year, the Architizer A+Awards is the largest global architecture awards program celebrating work from more than 80 countries world-wide.
Reflecting MSU’s identity as a premier HBCU and Maryland’s designated public urban university, a key project focus was to create a gateway building that embodied the university’s heritage, identity, and mission. This included forging stronger connections between the local community, the City of Baltimore, and the university. On the former site of the campus library and a highly traversed campus intersection, the building’s signature location was specifically chosen to serve as MSU’s outward face and to bridge the gap between the historic and modern precincts of the campus and the nearby residential community. The university required a progressive and captivating design that would establish a welcoming entry point for students, visitors, prospective students, and their families while responding to the campus and community context.
Voting for the 2021 Architizer A+Awards is now open and architecture enthusiasts across the globe are invited to register and vote for their favourite projects through Architizer’s Popular Choice online portal.
