You might not think about it very often, but everything in a building—the materials used to build it, the parts inside it, from its frame to wiring to walls to doors— has to be designed and engineered. The growing profession of architectural engineering deals with the engineering designs that are integrated into building systems and the architecture of the building itself. Included are lighting systems, electrical systems, mechanical systems like heating and air conditioning, and the structures themselves. This camp will teach you some of the fundamental knowledge needed to understand these systems, and how they are integrated into the building envelope. Through a series of lectures, hands-on experiments, demonstrations and activities, you will explore the engineering designs that make an architect’s vision unfold.
