Thesis by Long Chang presented at conference

Friday, December 5, 2014

Long Chang, MArch 2013, and Professor Gil Snyder recently presented research at the “Hmong Across Borders” conference sponsored by The Consortium for Hmong Studies at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, based on Mr. Chang’s spring 2013 Master’s Project work. Mr. Chang’s thesis study, “Koob Hmoov: Bridging the Cultural Divide Through the Architecture of Transitional Housing,” was developed with Master of Architecture Thesis Committee members Professor Grace La and Professor James Shields, FAIA, along with committee chair Prof Snyder. The speculative programming and design research for a multifamily housing project and culture garden located on Milwaukee’s north side was presented as part of a panel session titled “Architectural Space, Design, and Hmong Identity” during the two-day academic conference held at the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs in October.
