Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

A foundation course designed to introduce students to ideas, principles, and methods of solving architectural problems through rigorous process and elaborate visual communication. A sequence of design exercises culminates in a Course project, allowing students to explore and grasp the architectural concepts of space, form and structure.

Instruction is highly personalized to each student, through critiques of individual work-in-progress by assigned faculty members, as well as periodic reviews by invited quest critics of the collective work in groups. An inclusive and collaborative studio atmosphere with students from around the globe is maintained, through advanced multi-media and interactive platforms. Digital and analog modes of work are fully embraced in this new class format.

Enrollment limited to: non-architecture majors in college, high school students in 11th and 12th grades, and any individuals with a minimum of a high school diploma interested in exploring the field of architecture.

This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and precollege students.
