Architecture - Allegheny Intermediate Unit, CMU, Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation
Total Costs: A $75.00 registration fee payable to Allegheny Intermediate Unit is due when Apprenticeship Application Page is mailed to our office. Lab fee of $35.00 is due at the first session. The lab fee covers the costs of a journal, pens, and drawing paper that will be given to each student, a "T" ticket, and Station Square parking pass. Bring a check in that amount payable to the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation.

Participating in these five sessions will help you determine if you are interested in becoming an architect, urban planner, and/or historic preservationist. After learning about the key goals in architecture and building a geodesic dome out of newspaper, Apprentices will visit a vacant lot in Homestead and tour several blocks of East Eighth Avenue. After learning about the design process, Apprentices will draft plans, sections, and elevations showing his/her vision for the vacant lot. During a visit to Carnegie Mellon University, students from the School of Architecture will give advice so each Apprentice can further improve his/her ideas. During a visit to Station Square, professional architects will give advice so each Apprentice can refine his/her ideas and drawings. During the final session, each student will present his/her solution for the vacant lot and members of the Homestead community and architects will offer their critique. The five sessions give Apprentices the chance to experience what it is like to be an architect––and the chance to explore Homestead, CMU, Station Square, and downtown Pittsburgh.
