    Ever wonder how buildings stand up, or what an architect does? Join us for Adventures in Architecture, sponsored by the Iowa Architectural Foundation! Campers will be led by architects, interns and high school students involved in an architectural mentor program. You’ll engage in the design process, visit an architect’s and an engineering office, take a field trip to some landmark buildings in Des Moines, and go on an “Architective” walking tour to scout out architectural elements. You will work on your own model building with a team, presenting your project on the last day of class.
