In Wright’s Studio Design Camps 3-5


A Place to Thrive: Health, Happiness, and Home


Nurture your creative spirit at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Studio, where America's most famous architect pioneered a bold new vision for modern architecture and design.  

We invite campers to explore how Frank Lloyd Wright has inspired generations of architects and designers to build better homes for the future. This camp will dive into the question of how our homes impact our mental and physical well-being, and how we can use architecture to ensure that every person in our home and community thrives! Working in Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Studio, campers will explore the question of what home means for themselves and their fellow campers, now and in the future!

  • Each camper will take on the role of architect and create a unique and personalized home for a partner from camp.
  • Campers will use Frank Lloyd Wright’s historic Oak Park Home and Studio as inspiration as they create vision boards, sketches and an architectural model for their “client.”
  • Participants will have the hands-on support of educators, artists, and designers as they conceptualize their client’s perfect home.  

A Place to Thrive is offered for grades 6-8.   

Camper Showcase: Camp will conclude on Friday with an informal presentation of each camper’s architectural model from 11 - 11:30 am. We invite friends and family to join us in the courtyard near the museum shop to view our participants’ completed projects. We hope to see you there!
