Vacant since 1985, the Lebow Building on Oliver Street in Station North opened its doors once again Monday when 350 students in grades six to nine started their school year at the Baltimore Design School. (Which, it so happens, is across from the Baltimore Node makerspace. Kids, get thee to 3D printers.)

Students at the school had been taking classes in design, architecture and fashion inside the former Winston Middle School building since 2011.

About 10 years in the making, it’s the “first design school in the country to serve middle and high school students, reports the Baltimore Sunand has been heralded by Steve Ziger, partner with the Ziger/Snead architecture firm responsible for the renovation of the 120,000-square-foot Lebow Building, as the “national model for design thinking.”
