Lexington Market Project

Taught by faculty member Kyla Fullenwider, Design for Change partnered with the Mayor's Office of Economic & Neighborhood Development, the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, and Lexington Market. Students were tasked to design functional and aesthetically pleasing stands for the licensed vendors that sell merchandise on the outside perimeter of Lexington Market. Community and partner interaction included researching the history of the area; developing evaluation and feedback forms to gauge the communities perception of the market; site visits to the market during peak hours; meeting and interacting with vendors and stakeholders to address concerns and needs; and  testing prototypes with vendors. At the end of the semester, students presented suggestions for a final design to vendors and stakeholders. The project received positive feedback from the community partners that were involved including Baltimore Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
