DANIELS DESIGN BOOTCAMP - FALL 2021/WINTER 2022

The Daniels Design Bootcamp provides a comprehensive introduction to the discipline of architecture, giving you the opportunity to experience different ways of seeing, thinking, and making through the lens of design. The program will develop your skills in a broad range of design tools and techniques, providing a strong foundation to explore your creative potential.

WHO?
This program is designed for late high school (grades 11 and 12) and undergraduate participants of all disciplines who are interested in architecture. This program is open to all participants, including English-speaking international students.

For anyone interested in a future career in design, the Daniels Design Career Discovery Bootcamp is a great opportunity to experience the intensive studio culture that characterizes most architecture programs. Our bootcamp programs allow participants to build up collections of drawings and models that will complement admissions portfolios. 

The program will also include:
—Lectures by practicing architects and faculty.
—Virtual field trips to local buildings and professional offices.
—One-on-one instruction and feedback.
—Training in representation, model-building, and related skills.
—Periodic reviews where participants present their work to practicing architects and other design professionals.]

WHERE?
This program will be delivered online through a variety of platforms including Quercus (the University of Toronto’s learning management system), Zoom web conferencing, Microsoft Teams, and other related software. Students will have access to programs used in our undergraduate program delivery.

*Price does NOT include access to the Adobe Suites. Participants can register for the Adobe Creative Cloud through Adobe or through us for the academic year for $200 CAD 

WHEN?
This year, we have revised our 4-week curriculum into four 1-week courses. The courses are listed below and can be taken independently and require no previous experience. There is no course sequencing so mix and match to suit your interests, schedule, and budget (with the exception of Course 4 - Expanded Context). 

HOW?

Course 1 – Site Mapping
Course 1 introduces concepts, tools, and techniques related to site analysis in architecture. Students will develop new understandings of their environment, and learn to visualize these insights as a way to contextualize future acts of design.

Course 2 – Form Finding
Course 2 focuses on the development of design geometries, emphasizing a material process for the generation of architectural form. Through different forms of analog and digital representation, students will create a repeatable module that will act as the basis for a new design intervention.

Course 3 – Design Thinking
Course 3 serves as a broad introduction to the design requirements of architectural construction. Students will explore unique program organizations and their spatial relationships, leading to a deeper understanding of inhabiting space.

Course 4 – Expanded Context
Course 4 emphasizes architecture's role in the city, introducing students to contemporary social, political, and ecological issues related to the built environment. This course will also focus on the creation of a design portfolio, giving students the opportunity to develop a refined presentation of their work.

* * Please note that admission to Course 4 will be restricted to students enrolled in the entire 4-week bootcamp curriculum

For those students looking to come out of the program with materials for a portfolio, we highly recommend taking all 4 courses. Over the duration of the courses, you will build out pages of a portfolio through the series of projects. An additional workshop is provided to those going through the entire course.
