7th Annual Architecture: Summer Camp

 

PHX Architecture is in their seventh year of hosting a one of a kind ‘Architecture’ Summer Camp for those aged 13-18 who are interested in architecture. High School and college-bound students thinking of going into the field of Architecture will be given a fully immersive two week experience that in the words of a past ‘camper’ is “Awesome!”   This year the program will run from June 8th – June 19th M-F from 9-3.  The two-week long camp is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about a career in architecture, and ‘campers’ will be introduced to the many aspects of the architectural filed and get to observe and learn from the unique and diverse staff of talented professionals that make up Team PHX.

Camp Attendees will learn about space planning, designing a project, business strategies, and the history behind the career, as well as exposure to the basics of Hand Rendering, 3D Modeling and Drafting and Photoshop/InDesign.  The can use their own computer, or one provided, to download the latest 3D software to create a project model with the help of the PHX team.  The program also includes lunch each day, and tours of Taliesin West, ASU School of Architecture, and a project under construction. This comprehensive, hands-on learning experience will expose ‘campers’ to what they need in order to decide whether this career path is for them!

Past ‘campers’ upon completion went on to intern at the firm, and/or enrollment in college Architecture programs continuing their goal of becoming an architect.  The team at PHX all agree that they get as much out of the program as the ‘campers’ themselves, and are always impressed with the curiosity,  talent, and potential of each and every one.  Nikal Conti, Principal at PHX says, “We are looking forward to this year in our new location which will provided expanded space for the Camp, and the inspiration that these outstanding young people bring.  We are always excited to help foster interest in our profession, and do a small part to support our architects of the future.”

Please email info@phxarch.com to reserve a spot.  Openings are limited and on a first come basis.
