Summer Design Camps

Nurture your creative spirit through immersive experiences in the drafting room of the Oak Park Studio, where Frank Lloyd Wright pioneered a bold new vision for American architecture and design. Guided by professional architects and designers, you will be challenged to find inventive solutions to contemporary design issues.

Week Long Design Camps offered for Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8
Single Day Design Sessions offered for Grades 9-12

In Wright’s Studio: Creating Community

When architects design public buildings, they must consider the diverse needs of multiple visitors. How can a library be both a quiet place to study and a fun place to read aloud? How can a cultural center represent all of the different families in a city? Can a school be a neighborhood gathering space? Join other young designers as you explore public architecture and urban design. Consider how a single building might define, protect, celebrate, or inspire an entire group of people by designing a model of a new public structure for the local community.

Each camp is differentiated for student needs and grade levels.
