Michael G. Meyers Design Charrette

19 February 2016, 00:11

Just the other week I had the opportunity to volunteer at the AIA Houston’s Michael G. Meyers Design charrette hosted by Kirksey Architects. At the charrette we introduced sketching and planning concepts to the students where they eventually presented their work to the rest of the workshop.

The competition is sponsored annually by the Architecture Center Houston Foundation, the Houston Chapter of AIA and local architectural firms and affiliates. This year’s project is for a facility that focuses on the adoption of cats and dogs. Houston-area high school students get to participate and their designs are due in April. Below is a link to the competition web site if you know of a high school student who might be interested.

This was my fourth year participating with the MGMC in one or another. BRAVE / Architecture’s Rick De La Cruz also volunteered on the committee and helped set the program for the design competition. As always it’s great to be around other Houston design professionals as well as the high school students starting their careers with the MGMC.
