Design Disco is a nonprofit organization with the mission to make design education more accessible to the young generation. It organizes summer camps, workshops, public events, and study trips. It was founded by ARCHIP graduates Jason Nam and Ben James during their studies. It is now run by young architects as well as architecture and design students. Design Disco provides an opportunity for ARCHIP students to reach out to the community, gain real world experience and be an inﬂuential part of a startup nonproﬁt.
Design Disco (short for "discovery") began with the belief that young generations from all backgrounds — not just those who can afford it — should have equal access to discover their creative potential, empowering them to incorporate design into their academic pursuits and everyday lives.
We organize programs for high school students to explore design through studio work, lectures, workshops, and field trips. Our nonprofit organization is run by young architects and design/art students from diverse backgrounds.
