Shores Innovation Hub Hosts Grand Opening Celebration

Experiencing the energy and excitement at the April 11 Shores Innovation Hub Grand Opening was a triumphant feeling for our team. The new facility provides students with an innovative, collaborative and entrepreneurial environment to discover, imagine and design solutions. "Thanks to ALW's hard work, the Innovation Hub is now open and the initial reaction from students is a resounding WOW! They absolutely love it," Innovation Hub Director, Ken Baldauf said. "Our 3D printers are cranking out student creations 24 hours a day, students are practicing Design Thinking, developing apps, experimenting with virtual reality, and discovering their inner innovator while being inspired by this amazing space. All that we dreamed of for the Innovation Hub is becoming a reality," Baldauf shared.

Scouting for Talent at University Internship Fairs

In February, ALW team members attended multi-disciplinary internship fairs at FSU, FAMU and Auburn University. We sent our scouts out to share the ALW story with students from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design and Environmental Design programs. Ryan Sheplak, Hays Layerd and Caroline Berryman (pictured below) reviewed and discuss students’ portfolios of work, learned about their career goals and interests, and shared expectations with them. Afterwards, we gave thoughtful consideration to the students who ranked the highest based on their work samples, career goals, personality, and passion for design, and plan to select a new intern from one of these three schools for a summer internship with ALW.
