The Architectural Foundation of San Francisco (AFSF) announces the Summer Design Institute 2020, a three-week distance-learning workshop in sustainable design and architecture for students at home during the CoVID-19 outbreak. Participants will learn professional digital design tools, interact with architects and engineers, and create a portfolio of photo-realistic and video renderings of their original 3D designs. Each participant will receive individualized mentoring by a design professional from a local firm. The Summer Design Institute 2020 offers students an opportunity to develop their own design skills and to create a portfolio of work that they can use for college applications and career opportunities. This summer we will be conducting two (2) three-week sessions, June 15 – July 2 and July 6 – 24.
The Summer Design Institute attracts students from around the San Francisco Bay Area and across the globe. All our students learn high-tech skills which they demonstrate through collaborative design projects, presenting to professional developers and developing a portfolio of original creative work they can use in applications to colleges and internships. Working collaboratively with diverse peers and engaging with professionals helps youth hone their interests and confidently envision themselves in a career. Those who have struggled in traditional classrooms often find that success at AFSF gives them a more inspired view of their future. To sign up please click here
