PROJECT PIPELINE WORKSHOPS are a continuation of our award-winning architecture + design summer camp. The program is built to provide students with a platform to discuss, analyze, and interpret the impact of design, art, architecture in the built environment through focused curriculum and creative outcomes. We believe that architecture is personal and collaborative, logical and creative, and it is the relationship between these modalities that defines design thinking and in turn defines the Project Pipeline workshops.
Up to five New Orleans High Schools will have the opportunity to participate in our year-long design workshop series this year. The program consists of three fall gatherings and a series of spring design workshops to be held at participating schools in collaboration with established Project Pipeline mentors. NOMA Louisiana will provide an engaging curriculum with a guide for teachers and professional assistance throughout the length of the program.

School participation requirements for the Project Pipeline program are as follows:
- One teacher facilitator
- $75 per student
- Nominate a student leader to join the Project Pipeline Student committee per school.
- Create a student Design Club/Class : 10-15 students
- Provide access to computer labs for participating students
- Work with Project Pipeline to Organize and implement the program to fit with the restraints of the school’s academic schedule
The curriculum will center on the impact of the design process and the students collective understanding of its social, cultural, and historic context in the built environment. Over the course of the spring semester, students will be tasked with producing two small individual design projects, one final group project, and a Process Book that details the creative methodology and critical thought behind their individual and collective works.
Once we reach the end of the semester, Project Pipeline Students will have an end of year competition to show off the rigorous work of the teams involved. Our students will present the narrative of their projects through various creative devices and discuss the social impact of the solutions they have produced in the public forum.
