200 Students Attend Design Challenge Orientation
For the 18th consecutive year, PHLF is hosting a design challenge for middle and high school students. Close to 200 students from Westmoreland County and the Environmental Charter School explored a vacant historic building and lot at 506-10 Clay Avenue in Jeannette, Pa., on September 24 and 26 during orientation sessions for PHLF’s 2013-14 Architectural Design Challenge. During the next five months, students will brainstorm their ideas for the site with team members and research, design, and build a model showing their vision for the vacant building and lot. In March 2014, they will return to Jeannette to present their models and ideas to a jury of architects. PHLF thanks members of the Jeannette Historical Society and William Prince of the Progress Fund for helping with the community tour and orientation sessions, and Pitzer’s Townhouse and Mimi’s Kitchen for welcoming everyone.
Below is a gallery of 15 photos from the September 24 and 26 orientation sessions.
