Mileek Williams Named to C.A.M.P Board of Directors

The Cincinnati Architectural Mentoring Program (C.A.M.P.) has named GBBN’s Mileek Williams to its board of directors. C.A.M.P.’s summer program aims to “inspire young people to become excited about the impact that architecture and building design have on society, and on the quality of life.” Offering an immersive, four-day experience, C.A.M.P. not only introduces students to the discipline of architecture, but it highlights the work of influential architects of color. C.A.M.P.’s long-term aim is to “increase diverse representation in architecture schools and the profession.”

Mileek’s passion for architecture was ignited by C.A.M.P. when he first participated in the organization’s programming as a high school sophomore. “It was truly an eye-opening experience for me,” says Mileek of his high school C.A.M.P experience. “It was incredible, being able to work with a group of students I had just met; seeing our design idea come to life and carrying that design through a series of collages, sketches, physical models, and critiques.” He adds, “being on the C.A.M.P board feels as if it has all come full circle.”

As a board member, Mileek is looking forward to being a part of the journey in the development of the program and carrying on C.A.M.P.’s reputation. “C.A.M.P.’s purpose is to craft an experience for students to have fun and express their curiosity for design through the exercises we present. I’m looking forward to being a part of these fun experiences for the students and hopefully inspiring them to connect to architecture in the way I did.”
