Phelps Architecture, Construction and Engineering High School is a Charter High School in Washington DC which offers students the opportunity to engage in the world of Architecture through coursework, guest lecturers, and week-long internships. During the students’ spring break in April, Cunningham|Quill hosted a student through a program called Design in Action, organized by the Washington Architectural Foundation and the DC Chapter of the AIA.
The student’s week was quite busy; he shadowed five different staff members and assisted them with various tasks and projects. He was already proficient at Google Sketch-up, and worked on his AutoCAD skills during the week. He was also able to visit a construction site with a team of our staff who were there to learn about copper roof details. We enjoyed having his help and look forward to participating again next year!
