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 will devise 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 will engineer outdoor structures that will unravel for a dramatic reveal of inner sanctuaries. The interiors will bring to light how the animals live and relate to each other. What surprises will be found!
