Architecture + Environmental Design

Architecture 03

Investigate architecture and its surroundings through hands-on model-making, technical drawing and creative problem-solving in this practical studio course. You will consider buildings, spaces, and landscapes from a design perspective though intensive site analysis. You will become familiar with drafting tools and conventions and learn how to create plans, sections and architectural elevations as well as how to translate those drawings into scale-models. By the end of the program, you will have completed a site study and built a model for your portfolio.

The Architecture + Environmental Design studio runs on campus July 4-29, 2022, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 9am-4pm (Pacific Daylight Time, GMT -7). This studio is offered through the Summer Institute for Teens 2022. Please visit the Summer Institute for Teens main page to learn more about the program and access the registration webforms.
