Treehouse Ecovillage - Building Community in the Forest Canopy
2022-2023 Youth Workshops ｜ Ages 10-16
Sat, May 13, 2023 from 1pm - 4pm
How can the built environment help us regenerate and restore social and natural environments? In this workshop, we will work together to envision a community that is socially, culturally, economically, and ecologically sustainable. Students will design and construct tree structures rooted in a shared set of principles that flourish throughout a forest canopy.
Our youth workshops encourage students ages 10-16 to tackle social, environmental, and engineering challenges. With an extended emphasis on more conceptual issues and demanding architectural concepts, these workshops are perfect for older students. Hosted at Seattle-area architectural offices, SAF staff and volunteer architects support participants as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking design challenges
Please note: All workshops will require masks for all youth, adults, and staff (no matter vaccination status) for the entirety of the event. All those who are eligible for vaccination are required to be vaccinated to attend and show vaccination proof upon entry.
We offer need-based scholarships for all SAF Youth Programs. For details about scholarships, email Program Director, Marina Szende at Marina@seattlearchitecture.org
