Architecture Design Camp

This exciting, educational and innovative summer program is a one-week commuter camp for high school students interested in gaining exposure to the world of Architecture. Students will be introduced to fundamental concepts of architecture, design and engineering through a variety of hands-on projects while working within a university studio environment.

Under the leadership of professors of architecture and graduate students, individuals will design and model a small scale intervention with emphasis placed on the relationship between form, structure and the surrounding environment. Each day projects will evolve through the design process which will include:

  • drawing,
  • model making,
  • field trips,
  • photography,
  • research and
  • analysis.

Students will gain insight into their work through individual and group discussions. By the end of the week, students will have a complete project to take home, which they will present at a reception for all participants and their guests.
