The Univ. of Idaho Architecture program is in need of architecture books that can fire-up the imaginations of high school pre-engineering and art students across the state. For the past 4 years we have been actively recruiting from these classes and networking with teachers. This Wednesday afternoon, Ken Gallegos, Phil Mead, Elizabeth Cooper and Dwaine Carver will be presenting to 10 Pre-engineering teachers who are completing their annual CTE (Career Technical Education) training at the U of Idaho Water Center. We would like to provide these teachers books and magazines that can stimulate their student’s interest in architecture. If you or your firm can spare 3 or 4 books and magazines (Architecture Record is best) to the Univ. of Idaho Architecture Program, we will make sure to distribute them to Idaho’s high school pre-engineering and art teachers classrooms. We request that you NOT provide old Sweets Catalogs, Building Product or Building Trade Magazines, etc… Gladly accepted are Notable Architects books, History books, Green Architecture books, , your Firm’s Portfolios, Building Type books, (ie… Northwest Homes) Architecture Record, Dwell, or any print media that can fire-up the imaginations of high school students. If you cannot donate by this Wednesday noon, we will gladly take them at your convenience.
You are welcome to drop-off books at the Univ. of Idaho Integrated Design Lab (IDL) in Boise, 306 S. 6th St. (located off Front Street across from PF Changs and Trader Joes). At this time, we are unable to provide you a receipt.
