STL NOMA(National Organization of Minority Architects) hosted their first Project Pipeline summer camp at Washington University August 2nd-4th.
Students that participated in the camp worked closely with architects and designers to create the designs they would like to see in their communities. For many students, Project Pipeline is their first introduction to the design world. By the program’s conclusion, students presented fully realized design projects that advocates for change and addresses an issue in their city.
The camp guides students through all stages of design using thought provoking and fun exercises that kept them engaged. The design projects encouraged them to take into consideration broader cultural, social, and historical implications. Students investigated through drawing and model building while analyzing through diagramming.
