• Summer break is nearly here – and as you know, it is a great time for students to explore what piques their interest!  Students with an interest in art, science, and technology, are invited to register for one of our Architecture Career Discovery Program sessions.

    This two-week class, taught entirely online, is designed to expose students to the experience of enrolling in a high-quality undergraduate architecture program. High school students entering 10th, 11th, and 12th grade in the fall, who are interested in future careers in architecture or design-related fields and have a curiosity about the world, are encouraged to apply.

    Session 1: Monday, July 12 – Friday, July 23 (9 a.m. –  4 p.m. EDT)
    Session 2: Monday, July 26 – Friday, August 6 (11 a.m. –  6 p.m. EDT)

    Course outline: The core of this course is studio work. In studio, students are immersed in a rigorous creative process that starts with an idea, the development of abstract models, and ultimately leads to the design of an exciting and innovative architectural building proposal. Critique and evaluation of studio work is continuous, occurring in one-on-one discussions with the instructor and in larger group reviews with invited architectural critics. Studio work is complemented by a series of lectures and presentations, which explore the broader context of architectural practice, contemporary projects and practitioners, as well as more technical concerns such as drawing and model making.
