Adaptive Architecture (Grades 9-12)
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
In this explorative, science-based, hands-on workshop participants will push the boundaries of what it takes to adapt to and survive in harsh environments – from scalding heat in the desert to inhabiting planet Mars! In addition to an experienced workshop instructor, students will engage with professionals in related fields. Students will also engage with architecture students at Taliesin, to hear their stories of building desert shelters in Arizona at Taliesin West. Taliesin’s built and natural environment will fuel inspiration for individual student shelter design models. Infused with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), this workshop will challenge each student to design an adapted shelter. The workshop will conclude with an exhibition open to family and friends. Lunch, full estate access with teaching staff and all materials are included. No prerequisites necessary. At the end of the project week, the students create an exhibition with their 2D plans and 3D models for an imaginary colony on Mars. At the end of the camp, students present their work to an audience of family and friends. Grades 4-6 $275
