Named for famed Italian humanist and architect Leon Battista Alberti, the Alberti Program is one of the Sam Fox School’s longest running community outreach programs, with the first session occurring in the summer of 2007. It was the brainchild of senior lecturer Gay Lorberbaum and Bruce Lindsey, former dean of the College of Architecture and Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design, who recognized that many young people receive no exposure to design education in their school curriculum or at home, leading to limited participation in the field of architecture, particularly among minorities and individuals from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. More national awareness and research is growing for Learning by Design Programs that find opportunities to amplify diversity and inclusion in the field of architecture.
