The award-winning CBEIS building, which houses Morgan State’s School of Architecture and Planning as well as related engineering programs, was praised by the jury as “deftly addressing the primary issues facing public architecture – social space, environmental impact, and fiscal restraint.  Working urbanistically, extending beyond its borders with its ‘street’, the building first acts to serve its neighbors and the campus.”
