FutureBuilders

Architecture Camp for Kids

Hosted every July, FutureBuilders is an architectural “boot camp” for youth in grades 6 to 9, that focuses on engaging the future stewards of our built environment in the theory, history, buildings, architects, importance, process, contemporary issues in, and experience of architecture. Designed and facilitated by archiTEXT, and supported by SUSTAINABLE.TO, the camp brings in guest speakers from a variety of disciplines to share their expertise around green and sustainable architecture.

By exposing these young people to ideas beyond community and urban planning - to the spaces that define the landscape - we are providing them with an opportunity to engage in a discipline generally left out of realm of children, while engraining an appreciation and critical eye for architecture, and an ability to define it.
