Building a tree house in New York City is next to impossible, however, you can dream big and build small in this afternoon workshop focused on tree house design. Learn how the experts design treehouses that don’t harm the tree and design and build your own one-of-a-kind tree house model. Students will practice the skills of drawing, scale measurement, model making and presentation in this workshop.
Design Discovery workshops are for high school students interested in learning more about the city’s built environment and developing their architectural design skills. Offered on weekends during the school year, these workshops combine architectural exploration with hands-on design projects, nurturing the development of design thinking and providing students with instruction in architecture fundamentals such as architectural drawing, scale measurement, model building, site and precedent analysis.
The Design Discovery Spring 2020 series will focus on green architecture, an issue of utmost importance in our world today. Each workshop focuses on an aspect of sustainable design, familiarizing students with the impact the built environment has on our climate and resources, particularly in NYC, and ways we can reduce this through smart design choices and conscientious conservation of resources in our own lives.
Programs run 10 am – 3 pm at the Center for Architecture unless noted otherwise. Lunch is provided.
Need-based scholarships are available. Scholarship information and applications for 2020 is available here.
