Summer Design Camps

Nurture your creative spirit at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Studio, where America's most famous architect pioneered a bold new vision for modern architecture and design. Building Story Through Design is a weeklong summer camp that explores ideas of narrative and storytelling through architecture, design, and photography.

An accomplished amateur photographer, Frank Lloyd Wright used photography as a tool to document and promote his architecture. Photographs of his Home and Studio taken by the architect in the 1890s helped him to better understand ideas about architectural space and the design of his own buildings.

Join other young designers as you explore Wright’s Oak Park design legacy with polaroid cameras, and then use your photographs to create a three-dimensional architectural model. During this weeklong camp, participants will have the opportunity to view original photographs taken by Wright as they document their own visual observations of the built environment.
