This summer’s program will take place online, featuring guest speakers, competitions, and prizes for the attending students.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has thwarted many summer programs and plans nationwide, Michael Ford, Assoc. AIA’s Hip Hop Architecture Camp will weather the change, transitioning to a virtual format this year. Founded by Ford in 2016 year, the 2020 Hip Hop Architecture Camp will be a one-week-long program that aims to introduce 1,500 underrepresented middle- and high-school students to the design community. Working with architects, designers, and activists, the students will explore how design shapes their own communities.
This year’s online camp will be held Aug. 1 through Aug. 11, and feature architecture, urban planning, fashion, and music challenges for the students.
