A top-ranked architecture school, a nationally recognized museum, a cutting edge community learning space, a leader in historic preservation and service, an inspirational mentorship program, and arguably the most famous architect's masterpiece.
The ACE High School Mentorship Program, Assemble, Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture, Carnegie Museum of Art, Fallingwater, and Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation collaborated to form the Architecture Learning Network (ALN) based on decades of K-12 architectural outreach and educational programs. These non-profits have since been joined by other regional partners to continue providing unique architecture education pathways.
High school students in the Pittsburgh area can benefit from a nationwide program designed to introduce them to the wide range of career opportunities open to young people in architecture, construction, engineering, and related areas of the building design and construction industry.
Assemble connects artists, technologists, and makers with curious adults and kids of all ages through interactive gallery shows, community talk backs, learning parties, and workshops focused on teaching STEAM principles (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
CMU SoA’s K-12 program offers multiple avenues for students to fulfill their unique desire for architectural learning. Programs provide an architectural foundation for children and youth, which imparts a knowledge and appreciation of the built environment, encourages creative expression and critical thought, and inspires civic responsibility.

Fallingwater’s educational workshops enhance the experience of students visiting Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece by addressing academic standards in different subject areas and providing students with the opportunity to learn more about Fallingwater each time they visit, growing as lifelong learners.
