More than a fun afternoon of creativity for school age kids, “Discover ARCHITECTURE: Library Edition” features teams of design professionals sharing in the one-day sessions at four Cobb County public libraries.
Offered since 2010 in Atlanta public schools as an after-school program by the Atlanta Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-Atlanta), Discover ARCHITECTURE is adapted for Cobb libraries’ 2017 Summer Reading Program in a partnership with AIA-Atlanta and Kennesaw State University’s Department of Architecture.
Two remaining Discover ARCHITECTURE programs are scheduled for July – and both are on waiting-list status for students rising to grades 4-8: Mountain View Regional Library on July 8th and South Cobb Regional Library on July 15th.
A huge thank you to AIA-Atlanta, KSUarch and to the architectural firms stepping up to volunteer your Saturday afternoons in support of Discover ARCHITECTURE at Cobb County public libraries!
Shown at the West Cobb Regional Library session on June 24th, from left, are Giovanni Loreto and Arash Soleimani of the #KSUarch faculty; Discover ARCHITECTURE co-founder Melody Harclerode, a past president of AIA-Atlanta; and a team of volunteers from Atlanta-based Collins Cooper Carusi Architects: Andrea Espinoza, Caren Innis, Ian Reves and Jessika Nelson.
