The Knowlton School Office Associateship Program

pH7 had the opportunity to give back to The Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University through The Knowlton School Office Associateship Program. 

The Knowlton School of Architecture partners with the design and building industries to attract and retain exceptional students through The Knowlton School Office Associateship Program. The program fosters collaboration between the school and the professions through a student sponsorship plan that provides outstanding graduate students with direct exposure to practitioners. The program helps the school to compete with other premier design schools and act as a catalyst for establishing Ohio as an internationally prominent center of design and planning. 

The annual program culminated with a banquet held April 4th at Knowlton Hall.  Dan Pardi and Michael Healy spent the evening with Evan Schlenk, a graduate student from northeastern Ohio sponsored by pH7.  Evan, provided a brief tour of the Knowlton design studios and shared some of his graduate level design work with the principals of pH7. The evening included student led presentations, peer networking, lively conversation, good food and promising futures.

pH7 as Project Mentor

pH7 architects was pleased to provide a Senior Project internship opportunity to Colin McAllister, a student at Worthington Kilbourne High School in Worthington, OH.  The Senior Project allows students to exit the classroom the last four weeks of their senior year to engage in a real-world experience of an internship.  Seniors must get their projects approved, create a display and presentation, and defend their project in front of an evaluation committee.  The Senior Project is taken so seriously that they must pass the evaluation in order to graduate.

Colin has worked closely with his Project Mentor, Daniel Pardi, Principal at pH7.  He also spent time working with pH7 associates on AutoCAD and Revit design projects, participated in site visits, and in project meetings with owners and contractors.  Colin’s enthusiasm for and interest in the projects assigned was apparent in his attitude and performance.  The future looks bright for this young man.
