TFA CAMP ARCHITECTURE gives curious kids an opportunity to dive into an architectural topic of interest and test out their own creative design ideas. Each week explores a different theme through hands-on creativity, guided investigations of architectural examples, and interactive presentations and discussions led by our highly qualified Educators and special guests (professional working architects, engineers, property developers, city planners, and interior designers).

SESSION 3: Architectural Cosplay
Calling all super heroes and heroines! In this fun and creative camp costumes, architecture, and sustainability collide! Students will draw inspiration from the design and history of the incredible buildings in downtown Tulsa and will use that inspiration to develop and create an architectural-based character complete with a full backstory and a one-of-a-kind wearable costume using many recycled materials. The only limit to this camp is imagination!
EDUCATOR BIO: EMILY SIMONDS
Emily Simonds is a mixed media installation artist, sculptor, and writer who loves to take art to the next level through engineering, sustainability, and interactivity. Every piece she creates utilizes at least 50% recycled materials, and most are made from more than 80%. Sourcing her items and raw materials primarily from junkyards, she uses everything from billboards to buses. She strives to blend elegant engineering solutions seamlessly into interactive art installations and sculptures, challenging her audience to think deeper about the world around them and embrace their imagination. Since 2009, she has worked with a variety of techniques ranging from airbrush and thermoplastic heat-forming to welding and 3D printing. Specializing in the use of unconventional materials, Emily is inspired by the problems she sees people face in everyday life, and endeavors to bring elements of fantasy and wonder to the solutions. Emily holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Applied Languages and Intercultural Studies from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Bioengineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
