Several Autodesk employees including myself participated in the 2018 Hip Hop Architecture Camp in Portland at Benson Polytechnic High School this past June. The Hip Hop Architecture Camp uses hip hop culture as a catalyst to introduce underrepresented youth to architecture, urban planning and design.
Here is the blog post I made that week, as they finished their week designing their architecture project using LEGOs and Tinkercad. Hip Hop Architecture Camp in Portland this Week.
The week culminated in the kids recording their rap they wrote shooting nit in the neighborhood and in/on the Autodesk Portland office.
Their video is available on YouTube, hear their powerful words and message.What an inspiring event.
