Future Center Students Get a Glimpse of Careers in Architecture

A monumental career often starts with a little inspiration. On Wednesday, January 29, students at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College joined current DSF Scholars on an immersive tour of the MBH Architects office in downtown Denver. Guided by architects at the firm, students participated in an icebreaker activity and saw the spaces where the architects work.

With breathtaking views of downtown from the 18th floor of the Wells Fargo Center, the office lends itself to innovation and teamwork. This type of creative thinking, the architects said, is important in their field, but the technical details matter, too.

Brittany Matteson, manager of corporate connection at DSF, says that immersive field trips like this give students a chance to envision themselves in various career fields. In a changing job landscape, it is important to create opportunities for students to explore their career interests in a tangible way.

DSF thanks our partner, MBH Architects, for welcoming our students and Scholars for this special day!
