On Monday, we had the great pleasure of having Tom Meyer, the lead architect of the Mill City Museum design, visit the class. Tom walked the students through his progression from a young architecture student at the U of M to the building the museum. Much of his lecture focused around the idea of adaptive reuse and highlighted projects that incorporated sustainability and environmentally friendly practices.
After the lecture, Tom invited us to visit his fim HS&R on the top floor of the Washburn A Mill. He gave us a tour and showed us some of the projects that the firm is working on including a model for the U ofM's Bee Center. Thanks for the tour Tom!
