Bridges: Structure as Art

Saturday, February 19, 2022 from 1:00 – 4:00pm  •  Hosted at: VIA Architecture

Girders, trusses, cable stays, oh my! In this workshop we will explore the basics of different spanning structural types. Students will gain an understanding of how different span structures work, how they can be used, and ways to play with structure to make expressive designs. They will use these lessons to design and build their own bridge model.

Please note: All workshops will require masks for all youth, adults, and staff (no matter vaccination status) for the entirety of the event. All those who are eligible for vaccination are required to be vaccinated to attend and show vaccination proof upon entry. Limited capacity from years past.

We offer need-based scholarships for all SAF Youth Programs. For details about scholarships email Program Director, Marina Szende at
