Summer Academy Camps

Architecture & Design

**This camp is currently full, but you can click on the "Register Now" button to be added to the waiting list without making a payment. While there is no guarantee, it is likely that spots will open up before camp begins. 

Explore the amazing 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 create a scale model of a house that you designed. 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 scale plans, as well as a scale model of a home that you designed yourself. Open to students ages 13-17.
