Summer Architecture Camps 2010

The popular Architecture Camps returned this summer for four weeks. 9-12 year olds attending the camps visited the B.C. Binning house and went on a tour of interesting buildings in downtown Vancouver.

By the end of camp, each participant designed floor/elevation plans and constructed their dream house.

Our final camp participants (13 to16yrs) had the privilege of learning from North Shore artist and trained architect Alfonso Tejada. Below pictures show places they toured in Vancouver and West Vancouver to explore architecturally significant buildings.
