Urban Studio Year Book 2015

The Urban Studio, APLA's teaching and outreach program located in Birmingham, Alabama, challenges student to explore the inherent opportunities found in an urban setting. Our focus is that of making great places. During the 2014-2015 academic year, we had 15 students who chose to come and do their final year of study immersed in an urban context. Dealing with masterplans and neighborhood redevelopment, along with designs of public buildings, the students engaged in work across disciplines that allowed them to see the potential their work has to create great places when we look beyond the limits of our site. During their course work, they also had the opportunity to collaborate with the professional community.

The following pages are reflective of their work.
