When we think of buildings we think of permanent structures built to the ground, but what if we could create architecture without this limitation? A building offshore can face any direction, be relocated to beautiful places, have interesting and fun features all while meeting the needs of an adequate building. In this workshop we will look at house boats and other floating structures. We will discuss the difficulties and opportunities of creating space over the water. Finally, we will design and test a floating structure. 

Designed for youth ages 10-16, these workshops take a step up, with students tackling social, environmental, and engineering challenges. Hosted virtually by local architectural offices and supported by SAF staff and volunteer architects, participants learn as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking Design challenges.
