Architecture Building Communities: Two Weeks in 2016

We are excited to offer two full weeks of urban design and technology to high school students for Architecture Building Communities. From July 11-15 and 18-22, participants will learn from the UDreamers how to repurpose a vacant lot and get an intro to the technology tools designers use, such as Rhino, Sketchup and Illustrator. Send in your registration form or sign up online today.

UDream increases diversity in the profession of urban design nationally, and in the Pittsburgh region specifically, by offering opportunities for permanent employment in Pittsburgh.
