Baltimore – Students and faculty from the School of Architecture and Planning have been invited for the third straight year to participate and exhibit an environmental installation for Artscape. The project, titled Destination 1 is a music pavilion and DJ dome inspired by the visionary ideas of Buckminster Fuller. A forefather of the modern sustainability movement, Fuller sought ways to help humanity better understand the inherent connections of Earth’s living systems that bind us all together. Melding with Artscape’s 2013 theme “No Passport Required,” Destination 1 seeks to celebrate the oneness of the human race regardless of nationality, ethnic, geographic, cultural or financial boundaries. Working with reclaimed / re‐purposed materials, Destination 1 seeks to deconstruct those boundaries. Thus, by promoting a global “oneness” and encouraging visitors to think holistically about our planet, we can encourage all to be better stewards of the planet we share, our “Spaceship Earth.”

Led by faculty members Brian Grieb, AIA and Brian Stansbury, Destination 1 will be a centerpiece of the festival along the Charles Street promenade. The team has collaborated with local DJ’s and artists who will help activate the space with music performances. Throughout the three‐day event, DJ’s will be spinning found records for a local salvage company. On Saturday evening, the sounds of Kinetic Light Instruments designed by artists McCormack and Figg, will help bring the first ever “Artscape After Dark” event to life.

“We are excited to once again be selected by Artscape and the Baltimore Office and Promotion & the Arts,” said Brian Grieb, faculty advisor for Destination 1. “The event provides a fantastic environment for our students to display their talents and creative energy, while creating a vibrant and thought provoking space for festival attendees.”

“Working on Destination 1 is extremely rewarding to see our concepts and models become physical structures,” said team member Courtney Morgan, a junior in the architecture program at Morgan State University. “It’s hard work, but at the end of day when you walk past all the things we have built, it definitely puts a smile on my face seeing what we have accomplished.”
