AIA Charlotte is proud to be a part of the Discovery Place ‘Year of the Engineer’ with their March 10th takeover.  Volunteer or sponsor for the event with your promotional materials for only $100.


Our objectives for this takeover day are to:


1.     Connect with the public to expand their awareness to architecture and the architectural profession

2.     Provide engaging activities to the public for fun learning, targeted for all age groups

The activities will focus on Educating, Drawing, Modeling and learning about Construction at various stations throughout The Discovery Place, to include:


1.     Draw & Build: Participants can explore existing Discovery Place exhibits with the guidance of an architect to design, draw and build with specific criteria.

2.     Technology: Participants can see how technology is used in the design process and interact with 3D digital models.

3.     Construction Materials: Participants can see samples on display and the components of a wall to understand how drawings illustrate the final built form.

4.     Site & Sustainability: Participants can learn about designing for a specific location, how a site is analyzed and how a site is depicted in 2D drawn form versus the 3D built form.  They will also be exposed to how sustainable factors are considered in design.

5.     Mock Office: Participants can engage with architects their working environment with a question and answer period, see and use tools architects use and learn the layers of a building and different trades by drawing elements typically found in building documents.

Take home bags with promotional materials supplied by sponsoring firms will be provided to the first 1,000 participants as well as customized portfolios for use at each station.


We are excited to provide the public with a glimpse into our industry.  Please help us share the experience at Discovery Place with your support!
