Design for gods and goddesses as we explore mythology from an architect’s point of view. Build spaces for iconic gods such as Zeus and Athena as well as some lesser-known, key deities of architecture like Limentinus the protector of the threshold, Hermes the god of boundaries and Janus the god of gates and portals, beginnings, transitions and time. Might you create a god or goddess of your own?

A universe parallel to the human world? Mirrored reality is just the beginning as we explore the full concept of “multiverse” from an architectural point of view. We will pair the concepts of the infinite universe, the bubble universe, the mathematical universe and the parallel universe with architectural expression to arrive at design solutions as we explore the unity of opposites, complementary space and contrast thinking.

From the oldest forced illusion perspective at Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, Italy to the most modern opera house in Rome, we will explore through making and drawing to learn about theater design and dramatic atmosphere through architecture. Experiment with perspective drawing, lighting, silhouette, puppetry, photography and storytelling as we discover the history of theater architecture, why it's bad luck to whistle in a theater and why one should avoid placing a peacock feather on stage.

Glide into the world of flying machines! From the very first flying machine – the kite – to the latest Flight Assembled Architecture constructed entirely by programmed “mobile agents”, we will explore how, when and where architecture and flight overlap. From Daedalus to DaVinci to the origin of kites, we will reimagine the flying machine through models and mechanical drawings to take a fantastical look at what could be possible if air replaced land as the basis for future architecture.

Don’t forget to make space for fantastic beasts and a species of nocturnal creatures known as gargoyles that turn to stone during the day.

From the magic of Minecraft to the work of Picasso, we will reimagine everyday objects, landscapes and people as simple geometric shapes and interlocking planes. Redefine the experience of imaginary worlds through drawing, sunprints, collage and model-making using the cubist ideals of multiplicity, transparency and spatial ambiguity.

Join us as we design and build a new innovative urban environment and tackle a collaborative mega structure.
