Architecture & Design

THIS CAMP IS CURRENTLY FULL - CLICK "REGISTER NOW" TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST. SPOTS OFTEN OPEN UP BEFORE CAMP BEGINS, SO ADD YOUR NAME TODAY!

Explore the interesting world of architecture, from drawings to scale models! You'll learn the basics of perspective and architectural scale drawings, examine the various delivery systems for houses (water, electricity, heating and cooling), and work in a small group to create a scale model of a house that you design together. We'll look at traditional and experimental designs from past and current architects, and take a close look at the environmental costs and opportunities that are available in building design. You'll leave this program with an understanding of how designers create and use a pattern language, and a better idea of what it takes to become a professional in the field.
