Architecture Adventure student works are on display in the windows of 119 N. Marion Street in Oak Park, as part of “Architecture Week in Oak Park.” The exhibit will extend beyond the week through April 30. Stop by and take a look!
The show includes large-scale chess pieces modeled after landmark buildings by Whittier students, large-scale building models for a miniature golf course designed by Longfellow students, designs for a green home by middle school students, elaborate landscape designs by Irving students, computer-generated 3D drawings by Lincoln students, and geometric stained glass designs in colored acetate by Lincoln students.
Through Architecture Adventure, District 97 students learn about architecture by working with visiting architects, designers and construction professionals, designing and building projects and taking field trips to Chicago and Oak Park sites of interest.
Numerous other events are planned for Architecture Week in Oak Park, including scavenger hunts that are part of the Oak Park Architecture Photo Party, coordinated by the Oak Park Architectural League.
