N2Architecture

N2 ARCHITECTURE! brings local practicing architects to schools to present a 30-45 minute PowerPoint presentation designed to educate students about the built environment and the architectural profession. This program is offered at no cost to the school.

The presentation includes:

  • An overview of building and design
  • Architecture through history and around the world
  • The daily life of an architect
  • The impact of Architecture on our lives, communities, & environment

This is an interactive presentation; we will ask students questions and encourage them to ask questions too. Students will be given a list of universities offering architectural degrees and an overview of the journey architects-in-training take to become licensed architects.

If you are interested in having an architect speak to your class, please email aianorthalabama@gmail.com with preferred date, time, and number of students per presentation.
