July 20, 2020 – July 30, 2020

The UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning offers an opportunity for students to experience architecture education through our architecture summer camp, which we have proudly offered for over two decades. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in an effort to provide the same rigorous, hands-on learning experience that students across the U.S. have come to expect from summers at SARUP, we’re proud to offer the new, fully online Virtual Architecture Summer Camp Academy.

Our Virtual Architecture Summer Camp Academy is ideal for students interested in architecture, design and 3D design technologies. Students in grades 9-12, including new high-school graduates, will learn the basics of architectural design. SARUP faculty members Alex Timmer and Matt Mabee, supported by undergraduate administrator Tammy Taylor, are excited to rise to the challenge of making this year’s academy memorable.

This Virtual Architecture Summer Camp Academy will meet virtually M, W, F from July 20 to 24 and M, W, Th from July 27 to 30. During this time, students will be presented with situations for which they will design an architectural solution. Students will learn how to communicate their design ideas through models, drawings, text and verbal presentation. Workshops will teach students how to use digital modeling tools, read architectural drawings and document their work through 2D representation.

The final day of the program is an virtual exhibition of the studio work produced during the week. The exhibit is open to parents, guests, and students, and offers the young designers a chance to discuss their work and ideas with all interested parties, including SARUP faculty, working professionals, and SARUP students.

The exhibit includes a review, brunch and awards presentation.
