I don't know if everyone is aware of this, but the Brown Center is kind of amazing. If you want to see what this magnificent building looks like from the outside, just Google Image search it. But what I want to talk about is the reasoning behind the strange exterior form of the building. I don't even think MICA students are so aware of this:
The building's structural supports outline the landscape of MICA's campus, as well as baltimore city. And regardless of where you stand in the building, the Main Building is visually highlighted by the Brown Center's physical structure.
