ArcheCamp Announced
for Summer 2007



In July 2007 Archeworks will offer a summer session consisting of a design / build orientation for students who have been accepted into the Archeworks 2007-2008 program. This summer session is intended for students who have little or no background in design and architecture or in a design / build environment.   Students will participate in a quick design process, a charette, and then undertake a built response to the design problem.  ArcheCamp will be an intensive, immersive, experience of cognitive and manual design processes and production concluding in a completed structure for human use.  Students will benefit from ArcheCamp as it will help them develop a better understanding of the transformation of ideas into physical form for the Archeworks school year. Additionally, a series of lectures by some of Chicago’s most compelling and challenging architects and artists is scheduled. 

ArcheCamp will be held July 23rd – August 10th, 2007.  Classes are scheduled Monday – Friday, daily 8am – 6pm. The class will meet at Koberhof, a studio and workshop on Chicago’s southwest side for the first two weeks of the session to design and prefabricate the project.  Final construction and installation of the project will take place at the building site during the third week of the program.

Archeworks facilitator, Randy Kober, will be the primary instructor for the ArcheCamp summer session. Kober is an architectural design and theory professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology and has also taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has been a project architect at Garofalo Architects in Chicago and has now founded the firm Anarchitectures. His building experience includes rough and finish carpentry, timber framing, furniture making, landscaping, and sheet metal work.    

Students can sign up for ArcheCamp once they have been accepted into the Archeworks 2007-2008 program.  Please e-mail info@archeworks.org or call 312.867.7254 for more information.
