PROJECT PIPELINE COMMITTEE

Project Pipeline is an educational camp that provides an opportunity to teach and to engage African-American youth about the process and impact of architectural design.  The program is designed and taught, primarily although not exclusively, by local African-American architects. Each camp location will create an architectural design project which fosters greater connection with the local community by addressing a recognized need within that same community. The camps are designed to teach the basics of architectural design, inclusive of mapping, site investigation, sketching, scaled drawings, model-making, sustainability, and presentation skills. 

Project Pipeline is eroding one of the biggest impediments for African-American students not entering the architecture profession: limited to non-existent exposure to the field of architectural design.  Currently, African-American architects comprise merely 2% of all licensed architects in the United States.  At the completion of the camp, each youth will have a stronger understanding of how to be engaged and active in the positive changes of the built-environment in their communities, as well as, having a greater understanding of the skills and role of an architect.  The ultimate goal is to have the students matriculate to college as architecture majors and increase the number of African-American licensed architects.
