MT. ST. MICHAEL ACADEMY ARCHITECTURE CLUB
2016 – 2017 Program
This program, an initiative of the Westchester Hudson Valley American Institute of Architects, looks optimistically towards a future for our profession that is diverse, inclusive and truly representative of the society which we serve.
This year, our Chapter’s dormant urban after-school enrichment program, which ran for 6 years at the Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in downtown Yonkers, has been restarted at the Mount Saint Michael Academy in the Bronx. The kids participating in this “Architecture Club” are in the 6th through 12th grades, so we have been developing a more substantive curriculum as well as mentoring those interested in applying to Architecture School and pursuing careers in Architecture.
Over the course of the school year we are running 28 sessions, all taught by volunteer Architects from our Chapter. The attached material is a class by class record of our session content, projects and field trips for the first half of the current school year.Read More
