Grades 9–12

Location: Social Sciences Bldg., Room 2002S (Design/Tech Studio)

Design, draft, and model a structure or space of your choosing during studio work sessions. Learn how to manipulate space, materials, and style through exercises that focus on drawing and thinking and through demonstrations of the properties of assorted materials. Draw and use architectural tools and techniques that are presented. Learn to translate your drawings into computer models in daily basic AutoCAD workshops. Use your architectural drawings to construct a model of your unique architectural design.

Display your completed project board and model in an exhibit for family and friends.

To broaden skills and exposure to the arts, the Architecture Intensive can be combined with the 24th annual Visual Arts Institute (grades 10–12), Minecraft™ Animators and Modders (updated!), Code Breakers and App Designers, Creative Vocal Lab, Vocal Intensive, Project Fashion Designer, Modern Journalism (updated!), Photography Institute, Creative Writing Institute, and/or Shakespeare Workshop to make for a well-rounded summer experience.
