Build It Up!

Recap: Hip Hop Architecture Camp

Hip Hop + Space + Architecture

This innovative camp was created by The Hip Hop Architect, Mike Ford, and brought to fruition with MANY partners, including the hard work, connections and skills pouring out of Rob Dz and Michael Dando. With the mission to introduce traditionally marginalized or underrepresented youth to architecture, urban planning and economic development through the lens of Hip Hop culture, the initiative allows students and community members to engage in re-mixing the visions for their communities and neighborhoods in ways that are culturally relevant, sustaining, and responsive. Planners from the City of Madison are using the content from the camp to inform the "people power planning" of Imagine Madison.

Check out the music video & documentary inspired by this camp! 
Thanks to all who helped make this possible!
