Celebrating architecture department’s new home | Bringing home the ADDYs

A well-designed home

The Department of Architecture and Environmental Design celebrated its new home in the Park Avenue facility on March 16. Cutting the ribbon, aided by students, were (left to right) Dr. Wilfred Roudebush, interim chair of the department; Dr. Venu Dasigi, interim chair of the College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering; President Mary Ellen Mazey and architect Patrick Hansford, a BGSU alumnus.

The $4 million renovation of the 30,000 square-foot space brings together all department undergraduate and graduate design studios into one facility, allowing for more collaboration.

Students, faculty, staff bring home ADDY awards

BGSU students in Amy Fidler’s three-dimensional design class do amazing things. In fact, “Do Amazing Things” is the name of a mural they created that earned them top advertising awards at the local and district levels.

The students planned, developed and implemented the mural for the Toledo Arts Commission’s Artomatic419 last April. The team won a gold ADDY award at the American Advertising Federation (AAF) of Toledo’s awards ceremony and a Gold ADDY at the district competition, which qualifies the project for the national competition.
