Mercer College to host

Architecture Career Day

The program is designed for anyone interested in learning more about a career in architecture, and the major focus will be the review and critique of student submissions for "Design Challenge 2001."

"Design Challenge 2001" is a program conceived by faculty members from Mercer’s Architecture Program in which high school students are invited to participate in a design project for a small vacation home situated on a wooded, lakeside lot.

Student submissions will be projected on a large screen in the theater and critiqued by three architects and designers who serve on Mercer’s Architecture Advisory Commission: Michael Burns, Alan Goodheart and Patricia Moran-Totaro. The program will be followed by a question-and-answer session, and tours of the campus and architecture studios.

Participation in "Design Challenge 2001" is not a requirement for attendance. The program is open to all students, parents, guidance counselors and teachers interested in architecture. Seating is limited. To make a reservation, call (609) 586-4800, Ext. 3350.
