AHA Seniors Participate in Advanced Architectural Project in STREAM Program

February, 2016 


DEMAREST, NJ — AHA seniors Risako Arcari and Amanda Nedelkoff recently participated in an advanced architectural project with real world applications as part of Holy Angels' prestigious STREAM program. The two students interpreted architectural blueprints for the Village School renovations into their own 3-D rendering using industry-standard Google SketchUp and then printed their original rendering on one of the school’s 3-D printers.

The model and renderings will be used by architect Joseph Bianco, to present the Village School renovations to the town of Closter. The project, which preserves the historic façade of the old school while modernizing the interior for housing, was of interest to the students. Risako will study architecture next year in college, while Amanda is looking forward to studying interior design. The two students took on the project in their STREAM-aligned Digital Design class, which emphasizes problem-solving for the better good. Distinguishing themselves from area schools, Holy Angels is known for making its STREAM curriculum accessible to every single student.
