UB environmental design student Kassandra Hazelhurst helps kids from Alina Clark's class at PS 53 Community Park school develop fun architecture models. As part of the program, students lead classroom sessions that use design and architectural principles to teach kids about math, science, history, art and technology.
Kids use the knowledge they gained through Architecture + Education to design and build architectural models.
Students from Alina Clark's class at PS 53 Community Park school in Buffalo show off the architectural models they created this November.
An initiative of the Buffalo Architecture Foundation, the Architecture + Education program is offered in select Buffalo Public Schools every other year. Over the past 10 years, the program has involved 25 Buffalo Public Schools, more than 100 architects and 100 classes, and more than 3,500 students.
Buffalo-area architects Paul Murawski and Deanna Ernst, along with current UB architecture and planning students Kassandra Hazelhurst and Emily Minkowitz, worked with pupils from Alina Clark's elementary school class.
Architecture + Education is offered biannually and won the 2013 American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Diversity Recognition Program Award for promoting and supporting diversity in architecture.
