Morgan State University, an HBCU, is known for preparing diverse and competitive graduates for success in a global, interdependent society. To be successful, one must feed both the body and mind. Join members of the team that developed the new Thurgood Marshall Dining Hall for the morning to get a behind the scenes look at the state-of-the-art facility, hear from designers/architects/members of the planning team about the process and why certain decisions were made, then get an overview of the first 6 months of operations and what has been learned. A valuable experience for anyone who may have a new build or renovation in their future.
Visit the Lexington Market in Baltimore and walk away with a better appreciation of food hall and marketplace models, an understanding of how community can tie into the operation, and an overview design considerations. Attendees will learn about this historic market, the community collaboration, and how the major renovations came to be. Take a behind the counter tour of some of the stalls and meet current vendors. There will be discussions with the developer, architect firm, and others that worked on this project…plus time to explore and shop!
