Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ - Los Angeles, Austin, Atlanta, and Detroit

Starting this summer, there are a series of one week summer programs for under represented youth.  For details, see below and the below listed website.

Hip Hop Architecture

The Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ is a one week intensive experience, designed to introduce under represented youth to architecture, urban planning, creative place making and economic development through the lens of hip hop culture. The Camp is based on the "4C's" which are Creativity, Collaboration, Communication and Critical Thinking. During the camp, students are paired with architects, urban planners, designers, community activists and hip hop artists to create unique visions for their communities which include the creation of physical models, digital models and the creation of a Hip Hop Architecture track and music video summarizing their designs

Who can apply for The Hip Hop Architecture Camp™?
The Hip Hop Architecture Camp is open to middle school and high school students, because of the overwhelming interest in the camp, participants must apply for the limited spaces available in each city. There is no typical student for The Hip Hop Architecture Camp™. Our students are inspiring architects, urban planners hip hop artists, musicians, computer game creators, interior designers, industrial designers, politicians and more!
