ICS Sponsors Orlando Foundation for Architecture BAM Series
Interior Contract Services Inc., an Orlando, Florida, based office furniture dealership has been a proud supporter of the Orlando Foundation of Architecture Black Architects in the Making (BAM) program and series. Black Architects in the Making (BAM) Orlando was recently featured in the Orlando Business Journal in August 2021. The goal of the Black Architect in the Making organization here in Orlando and Central, Florida is to entice, excite, and encourage the younger generation of color, and those who identify as such, to pursue a career in architecture.
Interior Contract Services Inc. recently sponsored an urban planning workshop for kids at the Orlando Science Center. During the workshop volunteers discussed how different approaches to design have an effect of the environment and the people that inhabit those spaces. What is sustainability and walkability? Lunch was also provided along with a plethora of activities!
The organization seeks to accomplish this by hosting focused workshops, like this past week at the Orlando Science Center, site visits, and hands – on development. In addition, BAM aims to offer internships and scholarships for architectural education, to promote diversity in the architectural community, and to encourage public awareness and appreciation of the built environment. Malcolm Jones with Scott + Cormia Architects currently serves as the group chapter President.
