Architecture Summer Camp

Architecture Summer Camp

The Architecture Summer Camp is a 4 Day camp for youth aged 10 – 18. The camp is designed to expose youth to the built environment and architectural profession. As one of the few initiatives in the nation connecting youth and architecture, the camp introduces youth to the people, professions, and ideas that make up the architecture and design profession. Youth are introduced to the practical essential elements of architecture to promote a potential career and vocation in the field. The youth of varying skill levels and interests are asked to work individually and collaboratively to address community-focused issues through creativity and design innovation. The CAMP has been created to Equip, Empower, and Educate Youth through architectural design and engineering techniques and will include sketching, drawing, hands-on model making, and walking tours.

DESIGN STUDIO WORKSHOPS – The design studio workshops will take students through the architectural design process. We will breakdown the design process into eight in-depth sessions. While learning about these eight design processes the students will use each session to further develop their design of the community RFP (Request for Proposal) design project. Each year the students will be presented with a new project and potentially a new site in the Southern California area. At the end of the project development, the students will have a formal architecture presentation critic with guest professionals. 


ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN FIELD TRIPS – Students will attend three design tours to explore a different aspect of an architecture project. These projects will range from under construction to complete and will be local projects throughout LA County. These tours will help motivate and spark students’ creativity while giving them the inspiration to help enhance & direct their designs.
