Kristen Hess, co-founder and principal at HH Architecture, taught architecture at the 2011 Design Camp at NC State University the week of July 11th. The camp is for high school students to explore several disciplines in field of design and to learn about each discipline. Students completed five different projects focusing on architecture, art+design, graphic design, industrial design, and landscape architecture. Approximately 80 high school students from across North Carolina and 13 other states participated in the camp.
This was the third year Kristen has given back to her alma mater by working at Design Camp. “Sharing my love of architecture and design with students reminds me of why I wanted to be an architect,” said Kristen. Each year she begins her course by taking students through the core principles of design such as solar orientation, hierarchy of structures, place making, and understanding the impact of the design in the building.
