Virtual Campus Workshops

Upcoming
Design Charrettes

Shelter and play are two of the basic human needs.
They reflect culture, society and environment. They provide a space to live, to work and to relax. The design response to these needs are as varied as the diverse thinkers that interpret the design challenges.  

This sequence of workshops will introduce you to the fundamentals of architecture, engineering, science, structures, materials, forms and spaces. We’ll play with scale and proportion as we experiment with arrangement and composition. Drawing design inspiration from nature (blooming flowers, shells, spider webs, hurricanes, honey combs, etc.) and beyond, we’ll walk you through the engineering design process.

Our workshops will be hosted online using a teleconferencing platform. Students will be inspired daily to continue working on their projects and come back ready for more in-person peer collaboration.
In addition to S.T.E.A.M., drawing, designing and rapid prototyping skills will be developed.
