NCMA Performing Arts Center Final Review

Comprehensive studio culminated with a final review which covered all aspects of what was studied this semester. The performing arts center project went further than any previous studio project, moving from site analysis all the way to building details. It was a challenge to maintain the pace, and, in the end, it is hard to believe so much ground was covered in only 16 weeks.
