Architecture Camp Session 2

This week-long program is designed to begin with basic concepts and concludes with several architectural design projects. These projects allow the students to display the information they have learned throughout the week. The workshop is quite intensive but overly exciting with the vast hands-on experience the students receive. While working each day in the Auburn University School of Architecture studios, students will be given not only individual guidance, but they will have the opportunity to engage and learn from the university’s highly-qualified professors. Program faculty consists of dedicated and caring Auburn faculty members who hold degrees in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and the Fine Arts. The faculty's diverse background will ensure students a broad perspective of the different aspect of design. There will also be camp counselors present at all times with the students to ensure safety and supervision. In addition to their work in the studio, students will experience campus-life while on the plains. From residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, dining at on-campus facilities and enjoying evening social and recreational activities, the students will receive such a memorable experience that they will cherish this great opportunity.

APLA Lecture Series Presents Luis E. Carranza on March 28, Dudley Commons B6 at 4 p.m.

 

Lecture title: “Modern Architecture in Latin America: Art, Technology and Utopia”

 

Luis E.

He obtained his B.Arch. at the University of Southern California and his PhD in Architectural History and Theory from Harvard University.

Much of his research on these historical and theoretical themes can be found throughout his publications and, specifically, in Architecture as Revolution: Episodes in the History of Modern Mexico (University of Texas Press, 2010) and in Modern Architecture in Latin America: Art, Technology, Utopia [with Prof. Fernando Lara] (University of Texas Press, January 2015).
