National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) Louisiana Chapter to Host its Fifth Annual Architecture + Design Summer Camp

New Orleans, Louisiana - July 25, 2016 – NOMA Louisiana, the Louisiana affiliate of the National Organization of Minority Architects, is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Architecture + Design Justice Summer Camp: a program providing students with a platform to discuss, analyze, and interpret the impact of design, art, and architecture in the built environment through a focused curriculum and creative outcomes.

This year’s 4-day camp will host several high school students from schools across New Orleans. Students will work in groups with college or professional mentors aiding in the process as they explore concepts and architectural implications of personal space, neighborhood spaces, and city space. Each day of camp is progressive in the scale of projects all leading up to the student lead production of a functionally designed cityscape with socially motivated architectural projects.

Conducted through NOMA Louisiana’s Project Pipeline Program, the Summer Camp and year-long Workshop Series encourage individuals ranging from high school students to architectural firm leadership to participate in a tiered program as both mentors and mentees.

Program director Bryan Lee Jr. says, "The organization believes that architecture is personal and collaborative, logical and creative, and it is the relationship between these modalities that defines design thinking and in turn defines the architecture and design summer camps. We are thrilled to engage with the next generation of talent, young citizens, and professional peers to inspire an interest and passion for design.”

Each student team’s final project will be showcased at the Joan Mitchell Center (2275 Bayou Road) on July 31st, at 1:30pm. The event is free and open to the public.

About Project Pipeline:

Project Pipeline is a process-driven Architecture and Design curriculum that began as a summer camp for students in the New Orleans Area. It has since expanded to a Baton Rouge camp and a New Orleans Workshop Series during the academic year serving 200+ students. The program is built to provide students with a platform to discuss, analyze, and interpret the impact of design, art, architecture in the built environment through a focused curriculum and creative outcomes. Pipeline students are asked to think creatively about the spaces around them and are given the opportunity to investigate how they can best influence those spaces. Project Pipeline Camps return this summer to New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
