Seed: Strategies, Events, Episodes + Devices, offered by The University of Texas at Arlington School of Architecture and supported by AIA Dallas and AIA Fort Worth. SEED is a program designed to encourage talented high school students to consider architecture as a future course of study. High performing students from the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex were nominated by their teachers to participate in a two-week summer camp led by School of Architecture faculty. Twenty-five students were nominated by their high schools to attend SEED 2011: Strategies, Events, Episodes + Devices. The week long session was held at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Architecture. 2011 was the sixth year of SEED on the UT Arlington campus and the third year the School of Architecture has hosted its own program for the benefit of students who want to learn more about architecture in an informal summer camp. Explorations in construction and drawing emerged from the use of approximately 2000 cardboard boxes and gallons of red paint. Through the use of modular boxes in installations throughout the School, the students learned about the creative potential of walls. Surface properties such as texture, coursing, and fenestration were applied to full-scale assemblies. Lessons in the use of walls to define space were applied in the final exhibition; the creation of interior and exterior rooms punctuated by towers and suspended sculptures.
