Connect Barracks Row Report Online

We would like to thank everyone for their interest in the Connect Barracks Row project. This studio created a wonderful opportunity for us to interact with the community and generate a report which will help the citizens of the Barracks Row area guide the future of the neighborhood.

Our studio report can be found in its entirety on the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation website and by following this link. http://www.arch.umd.edu/student_work/app.cfm?id=621
