Cross Street Market Design Event Draws Crowd

What a great Architectural Event last night! Lots of people came to view architecture students' visions for Cross Street Market including professors, Cross Street Market stall owners, customers, fans, and many community residents.

At this event graduate students from Morgan State University and University of Maryland-College Park showcased their impressive drawings and models and discuss their projects with friends and residents of Federal Hill. These semester long graduate studio projects focused on new designs for Cross Street Market.

This was not only a unique and interesting opportunity to see models and plans, but it was also a social event. People mingled, talked about the Market and the neighborhood, and just had a great time! The fourth floor of 1111 Light was the perfect space for the event, as it is still under construction. The blank walls were excellent for displaying the designs, against the backdrop of a gorgeous view facing west.

Thanks to the graduate students and professors from Morgan State University and University of Maryland-College Park for their hard work and creative designs. Thanks also to all our volunteers, friends, and neighbors who came out to review the drawings and models and talk with the students. The 4th floor of 1111 Light Street, now nearing completion, was the perfect venue. What a view!
