IV. Tour of Firehouse 12 Recording Studios and Gray Organschi Architects

Are you a musician, or architectural enthusiast? Join graduate affiliates from the School of Architecture on a tour of Firehouse 12 Records, followed by a walkthrough of the architect’s offices on Tuesday Nov. 28th (the date has changed)!  The tour of Firehouse 12 begins promptly at 12:15 pm, followed by a walkthrough of Gray Organschi Architects at 1pm.

Firehouse 12 ( is an internationally recognized recording studio and performance venue on historic Crown Street.  Our tour will take us behind the scenes of this elegant venue, including visits to the recording studio, mixing room, studio apartments, and new lofts designed by Gray Organschi.

Gray Organschi Architecture ( is a globally recognized architecture office, exploring the intersection of design and building production.  A leading researcher in timber construction, the firm recognizes building as a medium through which architectural ideas are most forcefully explored and unforgivingly expressed; “as an undertaking that consumes physical and environmental resources as it irrevocably alters the character and culture of a place.”
