The Hip Hop Architecture Camp® is designed to introduce underrepresented youth to architecture, urban planning, creative place making and economic development through the lens of hip-hop culture. The Camp is based on the “4C’s”: Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking.
During the camp, students create unique visions for their communities which include the creation of physical models, digital models and the creation of a Hip-Hop Architecture track and music video summarizing their designs. For more information, please visit www.hiphoparchitecture.com.
On August 1-11, 2020, Hip Hop Architecture Camp® held their free virtual camp experience for 635 middle school and high school students from 31 states and 3 countries. Students participated in design challenges in the areas of architecture, urban planning, fashion (shoe design), and music.
