In Wright’s Studio Design Camps 3-5

About

Designing Preservation for the Future

GRADES 3-5

This summer, campers will envision the architecture of tomorrow as they investigate the lively history of Wright’s innovative Home and Studio. This camp will explore adaptive reuse, the life cycle of buildings, and restoration and renovation practices used in the real world. Campers will develop a new use for a pre-existing structure and create a model that showcases their solution. While working in Wright’s iconic Oak Park Studio, our campers will have the hands-on support of educators, artists, and architects throughout the week. Together, we will collaborate and consider the needs of our community and how to breathe life into an existing space.

Camper Showcase: Camp will conclude on Friday with an informal presentation of each camper’s work from 11 - 11:30 am. We invite friends and family to join us in the courtyard near the museum shop to view our participants’ completed projects. We hope to see you there!

This camp is sold out. Places are still available for Designing Preservation for the Future camp for grades 6-8.
