“You don’t go into architecture unless you feel the world can get better.”

After years of production, the documentary film Archiculture is set to premiere at this year’s Newport Beach Film Festival, which will commence on April 25th. Highlighting a group of students amidst their final design projects, the film illustrates the strengths and perils of architectural education. Shigeru Ban, Thom Mayne, Ken Frampton and Phil Bernstein are some of the leading architects, educators and historians that will be featured in the film, offering insightful criticism about studio-based, design education as it exists today.

 

Check out the trailer above and continue after the break for more information.

    Hi! My son Spencer recently attended the Youth Architecture Event held at the High Museum of Art. He was inspired by both the mentors and the hands-on activities. I would like to get information about similar upcoming youth events such as the Project Pipeline summer camp program.
    Thanks for taking the time to reach out to inspire the next generation!

      Hello and thank you for your interest! Depending on your son’s age, there are many options for him to continue to experience design and architecture.
      I have added your email to our notification list so you can receive announcements for any upcoming events.
      In addition to the annual Youth Architecture Fair, there are the following additional opportunities:
      For elementary school students there is the AIA Discover Architecture Program; For middle & high school students there is the Atlanta Center for Creative Inquiry; and once students enter college there is the formal AIA/NOMA mentor program.
      Georgia Tech and Auburn University also offer summer programs for high school students interested in the design & construction fields.
      NOMA Atlanta is currently looking into Project Pipeline/summer camp opportunities in 2014 as well.
      Stay tuned!
