The Architecture Foundation of Oregon will feature its annual Architects in Schools Exhibit on June 7 at the Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. in downtown Bend.  Bend and Redmond area elementary school students will showcase projects developed over the past few months during time spent with architects and other design professionals in their classrooms. Participating design professionals represent Appropriate Architecture LLC, Bend Parks and Recreation, Evolution Architecture, ORW Architecture, Pinnacle Architecture and RHiZO Architecture.

The Architects in Schools program primarily supports third through fifth grades and is administered by the Architecture Foundation of Oregon and serves children statewide. The program is designed to develop an awareness of architectural elements and construction methods through classroom sessions, projects and field trips that enhance learning in language arts, social studies, math, science and other subjects.  The content is guided by an architectural curriculum specially prepared to create understanding and appreciation of the built environment in which the students live, learn and play.
