Youth Design Workshops 2017- 2018
October 2017- April 2018
Our youth workshops take a step up, with students tackling social, environmental, and engineering challenges. With extended and an emphasis on more conceptual issues and demanding engineering concepts, these workshops are perfect for older students. Hosted at local architectural offices, SAF staff and volunteer architects support participants as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking design challenges.
Cost: Season pass grants you one free admission, six events for the price of 5 $25/workshop, lunch included. Scholarships available upon request – no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Location: Workshops are held at Seattle area architecture firms, and will be announced in advance of the workshop.
Sat, Mar 10 from 11am - 3pm
Seattle needs more housing! Where will we put it? Where WON’T we put it? Alleyways, rooftops, under bridges, over bridges, in parking lots, underground? Youth will design creative solutions to Seattle’s housing problem, finding vibrant living spaces for everyone.
Sat, Apr 14 from 11am - 3pm
As we move around more and more, whether by choice or necessity, our homes are the one thing we simply can’t bring with us. Or can we? In this workshop, students will explore the many instances in which portable architecture becomes a necessity, and design their own solutions.
