This summer in Seattle, WA. Dora Taylor, a 20-year veteran architect, is once again offering several architecture workshops for young adults. Architecture 101 Summer Workshops will include: bridges, town planning, eco-housing, geometry in architecture, and what it’s like to be an architect, among many other offerings.

Even if you don’t live anywhere near Seattle, it’s fascinating to see what Dora Taylor offers and how she got her start in 2001 while volunteering at her daughter’s elementary school, and is now teaching via Skype in independent high school programs. These programs and workshops enrich not only the lives of the children involved, but the communities that enjoy beautiful, functional architecture.
