dc.description.abstractA building can serve as a connector in many ways; it may be a simple spatial connection within the urban context. It may be a metaphoric connection between different functions or groups that are contained within it. Or it may even be a temporal connection, between the past, the present and the future. The urban fabric, economy, and culture of Baltimore were built upon industry. The departure of many of these industries has left a void in the city's economy and culture, though much of the architecture remains. The city itself may be used as a tool for the teaching of industrial design. The school must also teach job skills and serve the needs of the local community. Finally, the building must have an aesthetic component that is appropriate for its function, content and responsibilities. A contemporary reinterpretation of Industrial architectural aesthetics is needed.en_US
