2013 Architecture + Education Program


Architecture is all around us. It encompasses our daily lives. Knowledge of math, science, history, art and technology is integral in creating the built environment. Architecture is a proven vehicle for teaching these subjects in an interesting and project based way. By bringing architectural principles and lessons into the classroom that coincide with the core curriculum, students are exposed to a new way of thinking and problem solving.
