Project Pipeline Baton Rouge

Project Pipeline-Baton Rouge

 [Baton Rouge, LA July 17, 2013] – NOMA Louisiana’s Project Pipeline program, in partnership with LSU School of Architecture, was designed in the spirit of providing continued mentorship throughout the growth of an aspiring designer’s career. Project Pipeline encourages individuals from high school students all the way through firm principals to participate in its tiered program as both mentors and mentees. The program has had great success engaging students in the past year during Project Pipeline's two phases; a summer Architecture and Design Camp for New Orleans high school students and an intensive workshop series held during the school year.

NOMA Louisiana will be holding its first Project Pipeline camp in Baton Rouge this week. The camp will be held from 9am -3pm on Friday July 19th –July 21st. Students will be at LSU School of architecture on Friday and the Design Resource Center the following two days. Students from around the city will be participating, including students from the Young Leaders’ Academy of Baton Rouge. Students will take on a rigorous three day session of design from the personal housing level all the way through the city level. All student work will be on display at the Design Resource Center after the camp is complete.

The mission is to provide access to the design professions through tiered mentorship that connects HS Students with every level of the professional ladder. Great efforts are made to empower students to engage in design thinking as a means to effect change within their respective communities. NOMA Louisiana is committed to the education and professional development of all members in Project Pipeline in the State of Louisiana. Our goal is to spark the interest of youth and professionals alike, to build the mission of equality within architecture and its related professions.
