Get those creative juices flowing and join us for our inaugural Architectural Design Competition in Masonry! This will be a hands-on, educational event where attendees can earn up to 7 hours of AIA/HSW credit! The morning will be spent reviewing the basics of masonry design.
Attendees will take that knowledge and apply it by designing a small project using specific predetermined masonry materials and criteria. Then in small groups of three or less, these teams will build their project with the help of qualified journey person bricklayers. Projects will be judged and the overall winning team will be given bragging rights, a traveling trophy and a small memento to signify the accomplishment.
Each group of architects/engineers will be limited to no more than three. By limiting group size, this will allow each participant the ability to participate in the hands-on component of learning. Specific criteria for the design will be given that day. The theme is “TEAM SPIRIT” so use your imagination and the sky is the limit on what you can design!
Space is limited so secure your spot today! Cost is $25/person and includes 7 hours of HSW/AIA credit, all program material, lunch and snacks.
