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 a community-centered, design studio with emphasis on architecture, planning, art, and graphic design. The studio primarily works with the Louisiana State University School of Architecture to teach service-learning courses and the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance - a non-profit, community organization also based in Mid City.


Over the years, a variety of students, neighbors and other partners have participated in Mid City Studio projects. Most of the studio's work could not happen without their dedication and hard work.
