[DA] Club x MODA is designed to introduce BIPOC middle- and high-school students in the metro-Atlanta area to the field of architecture by providing them with a space to discuss ideas and create design projects, while learning from architecture and design professionals and college students.
Preparation for becoming an architect starts now, in the middle and high school years. Being part of a [DA] club shows colleges that you have taken initiative to learn more than was required about architecture, and introduces you to potential college references. It also gives you a chance to work on a design portfolio, a collection of projects that can include sketches, photography, paintings, sculpture, or any number of other artistic endeavors that show colleges your creative potential.

Son was unable to attend.
Communication, I sent my son the link just before attending a meeting. When the meeting was over I noticed a second email, that the first link sent was incorrect.
