Animal Architecture
July 9–13, 2018

Week 1 Theme: How does a squirrel build its home with branches and leaves? A carrier snail spends up to 10 hours selecting just the right pebble to attach to its shell. Why would a bug live in a nest of bubbles? All creatures—human, animal, and insect—carefully design and construct where they live, eat, and sleep.

Inspired by the Museum exhibition Lived Space: Humans and Architecture, along with works in the Sculpture Park and nature itself, campers devised habitats of their own creation reflecting what they know and imagine about animal architectures.

Week 1 Project: Design and create a neighborhood of animal habitats. Campers engineered outdoor structures that unraveled for a dramatic reveal of inner sanctuaries. The interiors brought to light how the animals live and relate to each other. What surprises were found!
