Architecture in the Schools is a program that brings together students from the University of Maryland and Northwestern High School in Prince George's County (Maryland). Through an art class at the high school, students collaborate with Maryland grads and undergrads to complete tasks that will give them a new perspective into the world or architecture. Students from Northwestern were told to design a pavilion that could be placed in one of two designated sites at their school. They had the creative ability to choose the shape, look, and purpose of the structure. The guidelines stated that the pavilion must function to enhance the school's weekly Saturday flea markets, or some aspect of school life for faculty and students. Although a pavilion was not actually built at the school, this project gave students the opportunity to think critically and get hands on experience in the architectural design process. Students arrived at the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at the University of Maryland to present their final projects to a panel of judges.
