Architecture and Design student

Registration for Summer Academy at UGA will open on Wednesday, February 5th at 10:00AM. Once registration is open, there will be a link on this page to register.

Students who register by March 4th will receive a $20 discount on day camp and overnight registration fees.

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.
