The ACCI Summer Academy Experience

The Atlanta for Creative Inquiry, Inc. is celebrating 15 years of service to Atlanta’s you and this year’s academies are more exciting than ever! This week-long summer experience is designed to immerse rising 8th -12th grade students into the creative design process used by architects, engineers, and construction professionals. Under the guidance of professors of architecture, practicing architects, and architectural students, high school students will conceive, develop and present architectural solutions to a real world design problem The ACCI Academy experience is perfect for students interested in careers related to the built environment such as architecture, engineering, or construction.

“Scales of Need/Scales of Design” will provide the themes for 2019 academies. We will explore design approaches that focus on sustainability and green design in the context of the emerging realm of disaster relief and mixed-use environments. Architects, Engineers, Educators and Site Visits will facilitate discussion and learning opportunities for the students as we develop concepts, designs, and final presentations (drawings I models) of proposed solutions for real-world design problems.
