  • Specialized in Architecture—offers 8 activities
  • 3 session dates to choose from
  • Cost starting from $700
  • Busing not available

This program is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Creativity: Participants engage with a multiplicity of media and learn that creativity is deeply connected to using materials in innovative ways, and finding inspiration in unexpected places, by looking outward rather than inward.
  • Curiosity: Participants are introduced to the idea that architecture is about more than just buildings. It provokes curiosity into all scales of the built environment, from the intimacy of a private room to the social complexities of the city.

LAB 101 – July 10-14 (on-campus) and July 31-Aug. 4 (online)
Emphasis on the human scale, multi-media drawing techniques, architectural conventions, and some physical modeling

This week-long workshop will include thought-provoking lectures and hands-on design thinking and making activities. You will be immersed in a culture of creativity, inspired motivation, and related skills-building techniques, methods, and projects. Each day will be dedicated to a specific theme that will culminate in a final exhibition of your projects. There will also be an opportunity to learn about Carleton University’s application process and a workshop in portfolio preparation.

LAB 102 - July 17-21 (on-campus) 
Emphasis on digital representation: Rhino 3D, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. Workshop on page layouts for portfolios

LAB 102 offers a series of unique, engaging workshops that introduce students to essential digital skills used in architectural design. You will learn how to build geometric models with Rhino 3D and refine a compelling project using industry-standard Adobe Creative Cloud software. These geometric models offer an opportunity to explore more advanced fabrication and physical model-making techniques. Participants will learn proper workflow to move between conceptual ideas, modeling, and visualization programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator with the aim of using Adobe InDesign to construct professional portfolio pages.

LAB 103 - July 24-28 (on-campus)
Emphasis on diagrams and abstract architectural thinking, urban space, and portfolio preparation workshops

LAB 103 is a week-long immersive multi-media workshop that introduces participants to techniques of drawing, small model-building, and architectural representation. A series of choreographed exercises focus on drawing by hand, three-dimensional thinking, and abstract visualization. Topics include concepts of line drawing, plan and section, perspective, cut-and-fold, and composition. Particularly appropriate for those who want to study architecture at university, LAB 103 places emphasis on understanding the kinds of graphic representations suitable for a portfolio.
