Architects in the Classroom
The American Institute of Architects believes that the art and science of architecture, when integrated into K-12 core curricula and community college course offerings, enhances the students’ understanding of the built environment, encourages them to think creatively and critically about livable communities and appreciate the impact on the quality of life.
For examples of lessons provided to classrooms, please view the following PDFs. These lessons were developed by Sabrina L. Tucker, AIA and Mark A. Humienny, AIA.
