Debra Brown named Federal Judge By Leah Barbour | MSU Public Affairs The U.S. Senate appointed 1987 Mississippi State alumna Debra M. Brown as Mississippi’s first AfricanAmerican female U.S. District Judge on Nov. 4, 2013. Brown graduated with the top architecture award, and her perseverance, diligence and focus were obvious to the School of Architecture’s faculty and administration. “MSU alumni have enjoyed growing success in their judicial careers at both the state and federal levels,” said MSU President Mark E. Keenum. “The confirmation of MSU alumna Debra M. Brown to the bench of the U.S. District Court in Mississippi’s Northern District is an honor for MSU and for the state of Mississippi. She will do a marvelous job.” After graduating from MSU, Brown worked in Washington, D.C. Not only was she involved in several construction projects for residential and commercial properties, Brown also renovated historic and municipal buildings. In 1994, she entered the University of Mississippi School of Law. In the years since her graduation in 1997, her practice has focused on civil litigation, especially commercial litigation and construction-related issues. In addition to serving on the advisory board, Brown is a member of various bar groups, including the National Bar Association, American Bar Association, Mississippi Women Lawyers Association and Metro Jackson Black Women Lawyers Association, serving in various leadership positions.
Michael Berk named 2014 UF Distinguished Architecture Alumnus Michael A. Berk, AIA, has been selected by the University of Florida to receive the 2014 Distinguished Architecture Alumni Award. Berk, director of the MSU School of Architecture and F.L. Crane Endowed Professor, is a 1981 graduate of the University of Florida. Florida’s College of Design, Construction and Planning honors recipients in each of its five units – architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, building construction and urban and regional planning – annually with this award. The architecture awards are chosen by faculty for the recipient’s outstanding contributions to the School of Architecture, academia and the profession of architecture. Berk will be honored at a ceremony on March 31 at the University of Florida, where he will also be participating in the school’s Masters Research Projects final presentations jury review.
Third-year studio returns from semester at WAAC Twelve students, one of three fourth-year studios from the Mississippi State School of Architecture, spent the past semester at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center in Alexandria, Va. The exchange program has been in effect since 1985 and is part of a worldwide consortium of architecture programs with Virginia Tech’s Washington exchange. “For the past 20 years, we’ve sent three to four students,” said Michael Berk, director of the School of Architecture. “It’s competitive,” he said, adding that students have to apply and be accepted for the program. The courses the students take at the program count toward their architecture degree at MSU, allowing them to stay on track with the five-year studio program. MSU student Haley Whiteman said the studios at the WAAC were run similarly to the studios at MSU. She said they differed, however, in the fact that three different projects with a similar theme were offered for the three different studio sections available to her. One project involved the design of a subterranean metro stop, another was an above ground metro stop, and the third was a water taxi on the Potomac River. “What I liked most about this,” said Whiteman, “was that I could see the similarities and differences between how each student chose to solve each site’s individual problem – mediating both the water, the ground and below ground.” “The city became a generator of design as we lived daily within the fabric of an urban setting,” said fellow MSU student John Taylor Schaffhauser. “I was able to take an Urbanism Seminar course in which our classroom was literally the city of D.C. We spent much time in the city discussing why D.C. is the way it is today and analyzing all aspects of influence throughout history.” Students in the program are housed in an historic building in downtown Alexandria close to a train stop. “Living in Alexandria, just a couple of Metro stops away from Washington, D.C., was one of the best highlights of being at WAAC and opened many doors,” said Whiteman, who added that she and her classmates were able to attend the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, visit the grave of John F. Kennedy on the anniversary of his assassination, and they even caught a glimpse of a sketchbook that belonged to Leonardo Da Vinci. “My experiences of exploring and living in our nation’s capital will continue to impact both
my studies and future,” said Schaffhauser, who added that he hopes to return one day to practice architecture. Last semester, the MSU students were joined at the WAAC with undergraduate and graduate students from the Blacksburg campus of Virginia Tech, along with fourth-year students from California Polytechnic State University, Louisiana State University, the Bauhaus in Germany and the Universidad de Desarrollo in Chile. “This is an incredible opportunity for our students to get to experience an urban environment with outstanding resources such as galleries, museums and great buildings,” said Berk. “And it’s a rich urban fabric where they can meet faculty and students form other schools and around the world.” “Engaging with other architecture students and faculty from around the world,” said Schaffhauser, “along with living in an incredibly rich urban setting, has brought my understanding of architecture and culture to a level that is extremely personal and only learned through engaging experience.” “I made friends that I hope to keep in contact with for years to come,” added Whiteman. “And I would definitely recommend everyone apply for the program at WAAC.”

Recruitment Event: Academic Insight On Saturday, Feb. 1, the College of Architecture, Art and Design held Academic Insight, an event for admitted MSU students and their guests. This is the second time the college has held the event, and 98 guests attended. The event was meant to help students get a better understanding of the programs within the college and was a chance for students to meet other incoming students, current students and professors. After a department fair, students and their guests had a chance to mingle with current students and faculty over breakfast before Dean Jim West presented an overview of the college. After the presentation, the group split up into the four college units – architecture, art, interior design and building construction science – and went to those facilities for a “breakout session.” During the sessions, parents had a chance to meet with the program directors and faculty while students worked on an activity meant to give them a glimpse into their program. Architecture students worked with Assistant Professor Justin Taylor and current architecture student volunteers on a kit-of-parts project. The students used laser-cut cardboard shapes to design form and space. “The students I interacted with during the session were very enthusiastic and inquisitive and had interesting solutions to the kit-of-parts project,” said Joseph Rose, a third-year architecture student who also serves on the Dean’s Council. “The students really took advantage of the opportunity to interact and seek advice from current architecture students.”
Collaborative Studio update Second-year building construction science and architecture students worked last semester in a collaborative studio with Professors Lee Carson, Alexis Gregory, Hans Herrmann, Emily McGlohn (all architecture) and Tom Leathem (building construction science). Throughout the semester, the students researched, designed and constructed two bus shelters for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians on their tribal lands. On Dec. 2, students and faculty from the Collaborative Studio celebrated at the two locations at Pearl River and Tucker. The group was joined by first-year architecture and building constructions science students and faculty; Dean Jim West; Michael Berk, director of the School of Architecture; and Dr. David C. Lewis, director of the Building Construction Science Program. Also present were Steve Murray, planner with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians; the Tribal Council and other representatives; and Chief Phyliss J. Anderson. Anderson welcomed and briefly addressed the group before the ribbon cutting. “It’s always a blessing to have a relationship with the institute of education,” she said, adding that the bus shelter project is something that the students should be very proud of. The chief then presented College of Architecture, Art and Design Dean Jim West with a handmade basket. West thanked Anderson and said the ongoing partnership has been a win/win for the college, and he explained some of the other projects the college has worked on with the MS Band of Choctaw Indians. The first project was in 2009 when the college’s Carl Small Town Center assisted the tribe in preparing a Transit Plan with funding through the Federal Transit Administration’s Tribal Transit Program. The study was used to support several projects, including the new Transit Maintenance Center, which was recently completed. Herrmann’s class constructed the first bus stop for Bogue Chitto a few years ago, and this year, two more bus stops were designed
PHILADELPHIA BUS SHELTER AND STUDENTS WITH MS BAND OF CHOCTAW INDIAN CHIEF PHYLISS J. ANDERSON. STEVE MURRAY, PLANNER FOR THE MS BAND OF CHOCTAW INDIANS, SAID THE DESIGN HAS BEEN WELL-RECEIVED. “IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOT ELEMENTS OF THE CHOCTAW CULTURE,” HE SAID, ADDING THAT THE DESIGN LOOKS LIKE A BASKET.

and built by the Collaborative Studio for Pearl River and Tucker. There are plans for more bus stops to be built for the community next year. “It’s been a breath of fresh air to have young people come in and work with us,” said Murray. “They’ve thought about ideas we hadn’t thought about.”
