Morgan State University (MSU), a historically black university and Maryland’s Preeminent Urban Public Research University, recently opened a new world-class student residence – Thurgood Marshall Hall. The new building is named in recognition of the life and legacy of Baltimore-native, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Thurgood Marshall. Moody Nolan, Inc., the nation’s largest African-American-owned architecture firm, served as the project’s interior architect.
Helping create a place for community as well as learning, Thurgood Marshall Hall’s 40,000-square-foot 24-hour dining facility offers a place for people to gather, study, share meals and build connections. Supporting a welcoming and energetic atmosphere, Moody Nolan selected Rockfon acoustic, metal ceiling baffles finished with a wood look. The biophilic aesthetic presents a warm, natural look with the low-maintenance, fire-resistant, sustainable benefits of metal.¹
