Event Navigation

Hold on to your T-Squares, as you learn alongside a professional Taliesin-trained architect. Be prepared for a quick-paced, fun environment, providing enrichment and growth opportunities. From expansive architectural thought and discourse to the exploration of the granular realities of the discipline.

This course is designed with previous Architecture camp participants in mind and aims to further student interest and abilities in the architectural field as they may begin to explore a career in architecture and design.

Through critical analysis of our own design strategies and thoughtful engagement with new techniques, this camp will push the boundaries of possibility while providing valuable experience using both digital and physical design tools. Students will complete exercises to expand their awareness and understanding while strengthening their ability to execute and communicate architectural thought. In short, students will learn to act by acting to learn. Wright called this experiential learning.

Daily presentations and group conversations will segway into exercises using architectural tools and conventions, such as digital modeling, as well as plan, elevation, and section drawings. Exploring the Taliesin estate virtually will serve as the laboratory, offering students a chance to engage, study, and discuss.

Students at a more advanced level will be provided additional technical guidance and support for future portfolio preparation.

Technology required:

Reliable Internet access

A Computer or laptop with a mouse as well as speakers, microphone, and camera capabilities.

Prior to the course, students will need to install the free digital modeling software SketchUp onto their device.

Supplies needed:

Ruler, Elmers School Glue, Glue stick, pencils, eraser, plain printer paper, clear tape, and colored pencils. We will provide all other supplies in a box mailed to you before camp.

Time Commitment:

Monday-Friday 9:30-11:30 am session with live instruction. Campers should plan on up to two hours each day outside of scheduled class time to work on creative off-screen activities in the afternoon
