Architecture and Design student

This camp is now full. Apply for the waitlist.

Ever wondered about how the built environment around you took shape? Do you have an interest in sustainability, sculpture, and/or building? Do you enjoy imagining solutions to design problems that have never been attempted? What does it mean to think like a designer anyway? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, SAUGA’s 2023 Architecture camp might be the ideal place for you!

Join us as we discuss the meaning of architecture and explore some of the discipline’s many applications while learning about sustainable practices, structural concepts, historical context, and representational techniques in the design of an individual residence. Explore your interest in architecture and gain insight into how its practice may be relevant to your future through lectures, group discussions, a field trip to an inspirational museum, and, most importantly, plenty of time devoted to interactively workshopping design ideas!
