ArchExhibitUMA Architecture Exhibit Features Innovative Projects by Students

The University of Maine at Augusta will be hosting a Juried Student Exhibition featuring the work of its Architecture students March 3rd – 28th in the Charles Danforth Gallery. There will be an opening reception on March 6th from 4:30 – 6:00pm.

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 (pictured below), 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 (B.Arch) 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 located in Jewett Hall at the University of Maine at Augusta.  Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday 9:00am to 5:00pm, Thursdays 9:00am to 7:00pm and Fridays 9:00am to 1:00pm.
