About the Program

August 9-13, 2021
10:00 am-5:00 pm

The Architecture Summer Intensive is a one-week enriched all-day program for teens ages 15-19 who are interested in the unique opportunity to work with leading architects while developing their portfolio and applied art practice. 

The program provides students with the rare opportunity to work with some of Metro Vancouver’s leading architects and other industry experts. Participants will learn about creative approaches in building public spaces and new ways of seeing the built environment. In an immersive studio environment, students will engage in research, critique, and making. Based on these activities, teens will also draw and build models to highlight their ideas. The Intensive also collaborates with Urbanarium to give participants an opportunity to create new connections, and gain insight and a deeper understanding of the discipline.
