Youth Architecture Fair

The K-12 Program of AIA Atlanta hosted the 2014 Youth Architecture Fair at the High Museum of Art in Saturday September 28, 2014.

Elementary, middle, and high school students and teachers throughout the state of Georgia were invited to this event.   The afternoon began with a keynote address followed by a sketching exercise and design charette exploring sustainability and art.  Each student created a building model that included in a massive model of a green, urban city on display in the Hall.

Thank you to our Mentors! Mentor architects and interns  provided guidance for students and addressed their questions.  We received over 80 participants at this year’s YAF!
