Living Form Architecture Intensive for ages 13-16 (P23)

Instructor: Ellen Phillips Saroka

Have you ever thought about building spaces that are drawn from nature? This is your chance to start exploring what makes a smart building and begin designing buildings that preserve the natural world. You'll study concepts like structural diagrams, plans, sections, facades, sheathing, heating and cooling, materials, siting, landscape, and lighting. You'll then use what you learn to create concept models, plans, and sections while designing a shelter for one person. No class April 11.
