In this virtual, weeklong summer camp, we will explore how Wright approached the design process in creating his own Taliesin estate. In live two-hour morning sessions, we will look deeply into the architectural details of Wright’s home and studio, using Taliesin as a text for organic principles of design. Students will incorporate what they have learned in our group sessions into a designed space that is (W)right for them. We will guide them through scaled floor plan drawing and model-building techniques, allowing them to design, draw and build their designs during the hands-on, off-screen afternoon sessions at home. Students should plan on up to two hours each day outside of scheduled class time to work on creative off-screen activities in the afternoon. To make sure all students have the necessary materials on hand for the camp week, a prepared kit will be mailed to families. Technology required Reliable Internet access Computer, laptop, or tablet, with speakers, microphone, and camera capabilities. We will be using google classrooms (free)
