Course description

Designed to introduce students to ideas, principles, and methods of solving architectural problems in a studio setting. Through a graduated sequence of exercises culminating in a major semester project, students explore the architectural concepts of space, form, function, and technology. Instruction is via highly personalized critiques of individual student work by assigned department faculty members, as well as periodic reviews of the group by invited faculty and guest critics. The grade is based on the overall performance in the studio with special emphasis on the quality of a major studio project.

Enrollment limited to: non-architecture majors in college. You'll receive a list of required supplies from the course instructor by the second week of May. You may use your own existing supplies or purchase new ones, as long as they match the items on the list. Supplies will not be available for pre-order from the Cornell Store.

Precollege high school students: You must also register for ARCH 1300: An Introduction to Architecture: Lectures.

Student experiences

"This was the highlight of my summer! I met a bunch of brilliant and amazing people who had similar interests to me, and although the work load was pretty intense, it was all worth it in the end for I came out of the program with a much better understanding of what I was going into and a stronger passion for it."
"It was wonderful! Not only did I attain knowledge of basic architectural concepts, but I also learned how to think and analyze like an architect."
