UNL students present design ideas for Albion

UNL architecture student Archie Campbell with his Albion display.Visitors had a glimpse of how downtown Albion could look in the future at an Oct. 12 review of ideas developed by UNL Professor Martin Despang’s graduate students in the College of Architecture.

Residents of Albion and Boone County, UNL students and professors, and professional architects from Lincoln attended the four-hour event at the old City Hall in Lincoln.

Albion is at the center of this semester-long studio, which focuses on ways to help rural communities prosper in the 21st century. The students, who visited Albion in late August, each designed and presented a project intended to help revitalize Albion’s downtown area.
