University, Community come together to envision adaptive reuse and redevelopment of historic campus
On a bright, crisp morning in January 2014, professionals representing several disciplines within the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation spoke on the challenges and opportunities facing the Glenn Dale Hospital site. Those speakers - with perspectives informed by scholarship and experience in architecture, planning, preservation and real estate development - then facilitated roundtable discussions in small groups with students, community members, preservationists and representatives of the property owner, the Maryland-National Capital Planning Commission.
Glenn Dale Hospital Campus Community Charrette
On January 25, 2014, the University of Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation hosted a community charrette about the Glenn Dale Hospital Campus. Forty-five registrants, roughly half of whom were students, a quarter of whom were community members, and a quarter of whom were faculty and professionals, participated in the day-long event.
Following the day-long charrette at the University of Maryland, College Park, the charrette coordinators released a summary to the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, which owns the Glenn Dale Hospital property. The summary included four major recommendations to be taken into consideration in working towards the adaptive reuse and redevlopment of Glenn Dale Hospital.
