Fire museum design project event at Brooks Hall at North Carolina State University, with a jury review of student's work. The class was an architectural design studio class (six credits) for eight graduate and three fourth-year undergraduate architecture students. This studio-type course is required of every architecture student for every semester they are in the program. Unlike a lecture or seminar course, the studio class requires students to apply information from other courses while designing a particular project located on a particular site.

The students were assigned a hypothetical project of designing a new Raleigh Fire Department Museum on one of three sites: on an urban street, on a prominent corner on the fringe of downtown, and on a prominent road at a more suburban site. The museum was to house the department's current antique apparatus, as well as apparatus they might obtain in the future. It was also to house historical images and other two-dimensional information and three-dimensional objects related to the history of firefighting and the Raleigh Fire Department.

There was to be a meeting/community room, a children's area, a library for log books and materials, and a memorial to honor fallen members or all past members. The facility was to serve as a history museum, as well as an education center and a place to honor firefighters. Raleigh Fire Museum members participated at the beginning of the semester, providing tours, presentations, and other information to the students. Mike Legeros photographs.
