BAM in the ClassroomThe School for Visual Arts and Humanities  at the Robert F. Kennedy Community School welcomed BAM’s Brian Spence into the classroom to talk about the field of architecture. Besides discussing what an architect does and how to become one, Brian spoke about how the geometry the students learn in school relates to the world around them. He showed the students how basic shapes translate into architecture, such as the Pyramids and the Pantheon, as well as how ratios found in nature can also be found in the built environment.

The Robert F. Kennedy Community School is a complex of six pilot schools, located at the site of the former Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. It is the most expensive public school ever built in the US and currently houses over 4,000 students.
