NOMA ATLANTA SUMMER PROGRAM
DESIGN JUSTICE: THE EDUCATION TO ACTION PIPELINE
Our mission is to empower young people to affect change in their community through design. Using the city as the
classroom, and connecting young people to real world architects and planners, we foster the next generation of design
professionals, civic leaders, and changemakers. We advocate for fellowship, equity, and excellence in design.
HOW WE DO IT
We guide students through all stages of design using provoking and fun exercises. Students investigate through drawing
and model building, analyze through diagramming and research, and engage through interviews and site visits. By the
program’s conclusion, students present a fully realized project that addresses an issue in their city.
We serve a diverse population of students, all of whom are underrepresented in the design field. Our program better
prepares students for college and life beyond. Through project pipeline, young people grasp the significance of architecture
in their daily lives, as well as the broader cultural, social, and historical implications. They develop the skills and tools to
contribute to their community critically and constructively.
