Destination 1 in BALTIMORE, Maryland by Morgan State University School of Architecture and Planning

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

Article source: Morgan State University School of Architecture and Planning

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.”
