The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Greater Columbia Section would like to invite all interested members to volunteer in this year’s Kids in Architecture Day. This event is sponsored by the AIA Greater Columbia Section as well as the Columbia Museum of Art.

Saturday, May 3rd @10am – 3pm

Columbia Museum of Art
1515 Main Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Please RSVP your volunteer hours to CBeard@BoudreauxGroup.com today!

This year’s Kids in Architecture Day will allow students to experience the architect’s collaborative design process. This program is designed to:
• Introduce students to the process of architectural design
• Explore the relationship between architectural design and art
• Create an awareness of the artistic and built environment
• Enhance communication skills

These program goals will be achieved through the design and construction of a Rube Goldberg machine. In this activity, students will work together and learn that there is more than one creative solution to any problem. Through the successful design of their machines, students will discover that the beauty in any design can be found in how it accomplishes its goal. After the students complete their projects, we will tour the museum’s collection of art and evaluate the unique ways in which various artists accomplish their diverse design goals.

The event will be held on Saturday, May 3rd from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Columbia Museum of Art. The exercises will be facilitated by architects from around Columbia. All materials will be provided by the Museum of Art, a pizza lunch (Pizza Hut) and snacks will be included and the event is completely free. Space, however, is limited.

ABOUT THE DESIGN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

As an AIA Greater Columbia outreach and education initiative, the scholarship program serves to connect the professional architectural community in the greater Columbia area with the architectural education community at Clemson University.

In 2010, the Columbia Section of the American Institute of Architects in conjunction with the Clemson School of Architecture first developed the scholarship program as a way to recognize individual and/or group project achievements of Clemson undergraduate architecture students.

2014 PROJECT PROGRAM

This year’s project is a collaboration with City Roots sustainable farm. Third-year Clemson students have been challenged to work as a group to create an overall master plan for the future growth and development of City Roots.

Each student has also been tasked to design individual components within the context of the developed master plan. The finalized master plan and individual component projects will be presented on April 23, 2014 at City Roots.
