Time: 6:30 p.m.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at MSU is hosting “East Lansing 2030: Collegeville Re-Envisioned,” the sixth in a series of monthly conversations about the future of East Lansing, on Thursday, May 8 at 6:30 p.m., in the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing.

This month’s presentation will include architect and urban designer Marcel Wilson, founder of BIONIC, an award winning practice based in San Francisco. BIONIC strives to “enable life” through the design of inventive landscape architecture, planning, urban design, and ecology projects at all scales. The firm’s urban projects are designed to activate public space through the incorporation of natural ecological systems, visible green infrastructure, and cultural activities.  

This is a continuation of the monthly series of conversations with the guest architects, landscape architects, and urban designers invited by the Broad MSU to envision the future growth of East Lansing. Prior to commencing work on their project for the fall 2014 exhibition, East Lansing 2030: Collegeville Re-Envisioned, each month a new designer will present their work and ideas, and engage in a discussion of themes as they relate to East Lansing.

Mark your calendar for our next event on June 5 with landscape architect Chris Reed from STOSS, Boston.
