FMS volunteers at 2023 nycoba|NOMA Project Pipeline Summer Workshop

FMS designers Carla Ross Allen and Seth Margolies spent two weekends volunteering in early August at the nycoba|NOMA Project Pipeline Summer Workshop in New York. Project Pipeline’s mission is to empower young people to affect change in their community through design by using the city as a classroom and connecting young people to real-world architects and planners.

Participants with various professional backgrounds worked together to lead workshops focused on immersing the students in the world of architecture, emphasizing the integration of green spaces in the urban environment.  From elementary to high school, students of all ages translated their ideas into sketches and models, learning the profound impact of turning their visions into reality.

From our involvement with the Tribute in Light, OHNY, and NOMA summer camps, our designers and staff understand that we continue to grow our lighting community by giving back.
