Mission

Through thoughtful design, public engagement, and collaboration, the Mid City Studio works with a variety of non-profit, governmental, religious, and business partners throughout Mid City to address complex urban challenges, build community, and practice excellence in both design and education. We are committed to communities – especially those consistently under-served by the design disciplines – and aim to foster an environment of participation and inclusion as much as possible. 

About the Studio

The Mid City Studio was established in 2012 in the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as an informal partnership between the LSU School of Architecture and the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance. The community-centered, design studio focuses on architecture, public art, and graphic design. The studio primarily serves as the outreach component of the School of Architecture's Undergraduate Program, but sometimes engages other courses and projects not affiliated with the University.
