Advanced Digital Modeling & Architectural Design (Grades 9-12)

July 13 @ 9:00 am - July 17 @ 3:00 pm

The week will examine how architecture impacts foodways infrastructure on a regional, national and global level. Students will delve into how current and past architectural structures have been driven by maximizing industrialized foodways and since become a large contributor to today’s climate challenges.

During the week students will be empowered and guided to reimagine the food system in a design challenge, that will promote sustainable and just foodways.

Students will build upon their existing knowledge of architecture and digital modeling using SketchUp Make (free) as applied to an individual project. Coursework will encourage students to develop a deeper understanding of the profession and the tools employed in the design process, with the goal of producing a portfolio-worthy project. The camp will explore similar architectural design concepts as previous workshops, with a higher degree or rigor, intrigue, and sophistication. Students in this session will be provided with additional technical guidance and support for future portfolio preparation. 

Each student will need to bring a laptop with a power cord and mouse with Trimble SketchUp Make (free) installed, a camera or smartphone for photos, and a sketchbook is recommended. Lunch, full estate access with teaching staff and all other materials are included. 


Prior design experience and familiarity with the software is important for this camp. To alleviate concern regarding which camp is best for a potential student, please consider sharing demonstrations of your work with the Program Coordinator. SketchUp models or photos or drawings may be sent to ahowelldinger@taliesinpreservation.org.


NEW for 2020, camp and exhibition will be held at the Hillside School on the Taliesin estate.
All camps are day camps, Monday-Friday, 9 am-4 pm.
