    Building Better Futures in Native American Communities
    June 15, 2021, 1:30-2:30 PM EST
    1 AIA LU|HSW. This event is free. Register here>>



    The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), departments of the U.S. Department of the Interior provide oversight of the planning, design and construction of educational facilities on Native American reservations across the United States.  The BIA utilizes the BIA School Facilities Design and Space Guidelines as a template for the planning and design of reservation schools.  The Design and Space Guidelines were developed collaboratively by the BIA and MOA Architecture of Denver, CO.  At the time of the development of the guidelines, MOA Architecture was a Native American owned architectural firm.

    During this program, MOA Principal and Educational Planner Jack Mousseau will discuss typical conditions and inequities encountered in reservation schools prior to renovation or replacement.  He will then address the reasons for the development and intent of the BIA School Facilities Design and Space Guidelines, providing a brief overview of the documents.  We will then review how the guidelines function and the processes involved in the development of reservation schools.  Mr. Mousseau will share the design outcome of several BIA schools resulting from the guidelines as an illustration of their performance.

    Presented by Jack Mousseau, AIA, A4LE, LEED AP, Principal, Educational Planner from MOA ARCHITECTURE. Webinar organized by the AIA Northern Virginia Committee on Architecture for Education and AIA Virginia.
