Architectural Glass Boot Camp

Designed to expose rising architects in the Philadelphia region to the craft of a glazier through interactive instruction and hands-on application.

What is Architectural Glass Boot Camp and who attends?

Architectural Glass Boot Camp is an interactive instructional program developed specifically for AIA Philadelphia’s Associate Committee and Young Architect Committee members. Boot Camp reinforces the importance of collaboration and communication in design by providing an opportunity for emerging design professionals to interface with apprentice glaziers and enhances the educational experience by providing a forum for the exchange of information between these two groups about complex construction issues.
