The mission statement for Architecture and Construction Science is aligned with my presentation, "Our mission is to develop skilled professionals who are capable of playing active roles in shaping communities through the building of meaningful places for all people."
The Hip Hop Architecture Camp uses hip hop culture as a catalyst to introduce underrepresented youth to architecture and design through three interconnected realms; media, professional practice and academia. Join The Hip Hop Architecture Camp team for a hands on, interactive Hip Hop Architecture Design Cypher focusing on creating socially just cities based on the analysis of popular hip hop lyrics. Cypher participants will learn to generate and print 3d models. No experience necessary!
