MBA interns Greta Ruedisueli and Nicole Keroack participated in DC AIA’s annual Architecture in the Schools program, which matches volunteer architects with public school teachers to enrich the learning experience of children.  Taught to middle school students at Oyster Adams Bilingual School, the semester long sessions allowed the class to study different drawing types, abstraction, scale, and construction of three-dimensional forms. Initial lesson on how to draw in plan, section and elevation by slicing and drawing bell peppers, the students learned about relationships between two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional form.   The class culminated with each student preparing a dwelling design model an 8” x 8” x 8” plot of real estate in a combined city based on their own abstract drawings.
