Gulf Coast Community Design Studio | Mapping a Modern MS

The Gulf Coast Community Design Studio was established after Hurricane Katrina. A branch of Mississippi State University, the Design Studio is community-based practice that strives to give those who may not be able to afford an architect a well-designed home and to address the systemic issues, such as land use and housing, which affect the Gulf Coast.

“It’s obviously very rewarding to be in the community where the work is going on, to live here and work here. Not only see the work getting done, but now to see how people have planted gardens and really made those houses into their homes. That’s been a very rewarding aspect of being surrounded by our work.”-David
