Hip hop has established itself as a gravitas culture that crosses borders of race, ethnicity, class, and professions through four fundamental elements: MCing, DJing, graffiti, and breaking. Members of the hip hop generation carry the residue of this culture into spaces they inhabit, and their individual works become seasoned with its flavor. The profession of architecture is not exempt. The Hip Hop Architecture Camp uses hip hop culture as a catalyst to introduce underrepresented youth to architecture, urban planning and design. Ingrid Gonzalez Featherson and Ricardo Rojas will share their experiences with the Austin Camp and discuss how elements of rhythm, space, and mass operate in the practice of architecture.
