On July 19, Method Architecture Houston hosted students from Creative Dreams Outreach Center for a day of mentorship, games, and learning! The children rotated between five stations learning the different facets of architecture:
- Programming & Schematic Design
- Interior Design
- Technology & Virtual Reality
- Construction Documents & Production
Method Architecture’s employees helped run the stations and taught the students about architecture in the hopes to pique their interest in a future career in the design and architecture field. Using their site and existing building at Creative Dreams, the teams went through each stage of the project to develop their ideas. The Programming & Schematic Design station involved an activity laying out the site placing locations for a library and school. At the interior design station, the students helped pick out finishes from tile work to flooring pieces for different rooms within the Creative Dreams’ building. For the technology & virtual reality station, they were able to use VR goggles and walk around a site. The construction station taught the students about the strength of different structures with fun visuals. The final station: construction documents & production had a group activity designing the exterior of a building. Lastly, the day concluded with a fun trivia game of facts about architecture.
It was a fun-filled day of activities and games to teach the students about a potential career in design and architecture and show them what all is involved in bringing a design to life. Creative Dreams Outreach Center is a non-profit youth development program offering different programs including art, dance, music and academic tutoring. Method Architecture designed their current building located in Stafford, Texas in 2017.
