For the second year running, the La Jolla Historical Society is hosting its ‘Young Architect’s Summer Camp’ in July 2013. Continuing her leadership role is local Architect Laura DuCharme-Conboy (who also sits on the Advisory Board for the NewSchool of Architecture & Design) joined by Pauly from DBRDS.
The Summer Camp starts the week of July 15-19 for Middle School students, following into the week of July 22-26 for High School students. Activities will include hand sketching (1-point & 2-point), site visits to local prominent homes from traditional styles through to modern, as well as an introduction to Google Sketchup, model making & a design assignment complete with a final presentation. Its going to be a busy week as Laura & I have met several times already & have locked in our very busy itinerary & as well as the parameters for the personal assignment. It’s sure to be a good combination of education & expression as the students are exposed to multiple facets of Architecture & Design.
The goal of the camp is to inspire & educate students about their built environment while giving them a glimpse into our profession…a shared vision of the San Diego Architectural Foundation for whom I am the current Vice-President, so I look forward to collaborating with Laura on this great program & continuing my involvement in San Diego’s Architectural community.
Spots are limited, so if you have a child in middle school or high school, or know someone who would be interested in participating in the camp, please check out the link below & get signed up!
