In partnership with the Northwest School, SAF will be offering two workshops during their 2017 Summer Camp programs: Designing Seattle
& Intro to Architectural Modeling
. Both classes will be offered consecutively during each summer camp session.
This class will take a look at the transformations happening in Seattle communities like Capitol Hill and South Lake Union. We will visit neighborhoods, talk with architects, and design models for new buildings and spaces such as parks, houses, stores, libraries, and streets. Taking inspiration from our camp’s international community, we’ll also look at urban centers around the world.
Intro to Architectural Modeling
In this class, we will use architectural modeling to design neighborhood parks, streets, and buildings. We will construct a study model out of card stock and cardboard, learning techniques to communicate the big ideas about your design. We will then build a more detailed presentation model to scale using balsa wood.
The Northwest School offers three two-week camp sessions from July 10-August 18, for youth ages 10-16. Visit the Northwest School website
