MICA moves forward with Dolphin Street demolition and new building

MICA moves forward with Dolphin Street building

Maryland Institute College of Art is in the process of demolishing a three-story building at 100 Dolphin Street to make way for a new center for technology-driven artists and designers.

Construction of a new five-story, 25,000-square-foot building is expected to be complete in September 2017.

The building will include prototyping laboratories, seminar and presentation space, and MICA's existing print equipment, according to a project description included in the fiscal 2017 capital budget analysis.

With the new resources and a new technology-focused academic program, Product Design, MICA expects to attract between 80 and 100 new students, according to budget documents.

The state's capital budget for fiscal 2017 includes $4 million to support design and construction. The school is expected to match state investments.

The new building is designed by Baltimore architectural firm GWWO.
