(Past Event) Weekend Architecture Camp at Devenney Group Architects


  • Devenney Group 201 West Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ, 85013 United States (map)

THE CAMP WAS A SUCCESS!

Thank you to everyone who helped put together a terrific camp. Below are some images from the camp!

 

APRIL 30TH AND MAY 1ST, 2016

The camp is taught by Architects and consists of 3 lessons, a tour of Taliesin West including the on-site shelters, and a model building session where students will design a personal structure that provides shelter from the elements as well as physical and emotional comfort. 

At the camp students will gain an understanding of how the built environment directly affects their own well-being and that of the natural environment. Students will design a personal structure that provides shelter from the elements as well as physical and emotional comfort. They will demonstrate an understanding of sun angles, orientation, scale, as well as spatial and emotional needs. 

A selection of students’ models from the camp will be put on display at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMOCA)  Oct. 5th – January 15th.
