The Worcester Auditorium is in complete disrepair and the city has no idea what to do with it. This project required us to create a vision for an educational exhibit in the Worcester Auditorium’s basement. We also had to develop an architectural program which described the educational exhibit for architectural students that may be interested in a contest to actually design the exhibit, sponsored by ShiftBoston. The AIAA Region 1 may also put up some prize money for the architectural student contest entrants. After the vision was complete, we presented it at the AIAA Region 1 YPSE 2012 conference in Baltimore, MD in early November. Also, we presented in a private meeting with other museum and science facility owners from all over Massachusetts
