Hip Hop Architecture Camp™

 

Build It Up
The Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ song lyrics are independently created by camp participants during the one week intensive camp. The songs focus on using hip hop culture as a methodology to understand, explore and convince architectural concepts and solutions to problems within the built environment. 

As each Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ concludes in each city, we will add the track created by participants and the related music video. At the end of the 2017 camps, The Urban Arts Collective will make each song, the annotated lyrics and music videos available for download to all camp participants!  

 

 

Los Angeles, California 

The Los Angeles Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ took place June 12 - June 16, 2017 at Los Angeles Trade Technical College. During the one week camp the participants competed in a freestyle cypher for an opportunity to record a verse on the official LA Camp track. We send a special thanks to  Alfred Van Webb, the producer for donating his time to the youth and a special thanks to Cli-N-Tel, of The World Class Wrecking Crew for organizing our recording experience.  Four winners were selected to be featured on the track and the entire group of camp participants created the hook.

The Madison Hip Hop Architecture Camp™ took place each Saturday during February 2017 at Madison's Downtown Public Library.

This track, produced by Madison artist, Rob Dz, set the stage for the following camps by encouraging everyone to create a solution to a problem, and "Built It Up!"
