The Palouse Structure
Inspired by the fabric of the Palouse hills, students will be challenged to articulate a landscape relief, followed by a habitable structure. Using found materials and 2D elements to generate 3-Dimensional spatial structures, students will be introduced to basic organizational and ordering techniques in Architectural design.
Art + Design - (workshop full)
This workshop focuses on the role designers have as storytellers. Using the free PhotoPea app (photopea.com), we will combine text and images to experiment with photos, fonts, and illustration. We will be in an Apple computer lab, but if you have your own laptops and tablets, please bring them! All student work will be printed in color at the end of the session.
Interior Architecture & Design - (workshop full)
Meaningful Moments in Place and Time
What is at the center of any design? What drives design? What inspires timelessness? Human beings are inside interior spaces 87-90% of their lives. As interior architects and designers, our mission is to design spaces that encourage daily meaningful moments and respond to user needs and aspirations. Bring your imagination and passion to this hands-on workshop that gives you a glimpse of how interior architects and designers work.
In this workshop, you will learn to design a landscape, starting from representing a concept bi-dimensionally (by making a collage) to building a three-dimensional landscape model using a variety of materials (carboard, steel, wood, cloth, etc.). The theme of the workshop is “Memory Landscapes”: each of you will reflect/ reminiscence a landscape that was/is significant to you and capture the essence of that landscape through a design process. The workshop introduces participants to a core practice for professional landscape architects, that of creating spaces that embody a narrative and provide the “experience of place”.
Virtual Technology & Design - (workshop full)
Animation and Virtual Worlds
This workshop will explore animation, visual effects and examples of virtual worlds.
