Star Wars, Minecraft, and architecture collided at the 2021 SoCal NOMA Summer Camp, as students worked together to design museums inspired by Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) values.
CO recently wrapped up another successful summer Architectural Discovery Program. This four-week program exposes young minds to the world of architecture and encourage students to consider architecture as a potential career path. This year’s program included in-person site visits and virtual experiences to guide each of the five high school students in their discovery of architecture.
In response to the events that took place mid-2020, CO felt the need to broaden diversity and inclusion initiatives to include justice and equity, creating a CO JEDI Task Force. It can no longer be ignored that racism exists, and CO’s mission is to dismantle systemic racism by taking decisive action and empowering marginalized voices.
As the first building on the campus, Sedgwick Hall is a symbol of Rockhurst University’s rich history. In this journal post, learn how CO celebrates and uncovers 100+ years of history in this newly renovated building.
SoCal NOMA introduced their first Virtual Summer Camp – a three day virtual program with classroom, assignments, exhibits, workshops and presentations. CO Architects participated mentoring minority children in architecture through this three-day virtual classroom.
CO created the Architecture Discovery Program to expose young high school women to architecture and encourage them to consider the profession as a career choice. The four-week program brought each of the students together as they designed their own unique projects on the site of CO’s recently designed Cal Poly Pomona Student Services Building.
