URBANFRAME: MIT Summer Architecture Program for Teens

This summer, in MIT/URBANFRAME’s Teen Design/Build program, 50 teenagers will imagine and build new architectures to transform neglected urban structures into great new public spaces.  The focus will be on “Public Works – New Architecture in Public Spaces.”   Students will visit sites, brainstorm ideas, build 3D models, present their designs, and then build and install their proposals for public use.

These hands-on architectural experiments will use the landscape of existing infrastructure to seed radically new ways to serve the needs of real people in their communities.

The program is for teens 15 to 19.  No experience required. Monday – Friday, 9:00AM to 3:30PM.   Full six-week program (7/1 – 8/9) or 3-week options (7/1 – 7/19 or 7/22 – 8/9).  Apply online.
