FBMS collaborates with architecture students on outdoor space


(Patrick) #1

Since 1990, the Graduate Design Build Program at the University of Houston’s Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design has produced one project each year for a school, nonprofit or community organization. This year’s design partner is Frank Black Middle School, which will have a $28,000, state-of-the-art outdoor classroom built for it by the start of next school year.

The genesis of the project came about through the Bunge family, whose two children both attend the school and who funded the project and Edgar Nunnelly, another FBMS parent who made the introduction to the Master of Architecture students in the Graduate/Design Build Studio.
