MAKING+MEANING is SCI-Arc’s five-week summer program for individuals looking to both expand the breadth of their knowledge of architecture and immerse themselves in the school’s studio culture. With a faculty to student ratio of 1:12, the program introduces the principles of architecture in a hands-on exploration of spatial experimentation, design methodologies and the creative process. It is presented in two modules: Design Laboratory and Visual Studies. The Design Laboratory exposes students to various design strategies while experimenting with materials. The Visual Studies module explores diverse modes of representation, ranging from gesture drawing to descriptive geometry and 3D scanning. The studio work is complemented by seminars surveying the latest developments in materials and fabrication technologies.
Scholarships dedicated for those holding an undergraduate degree in visual arts or design.
Summer 2014: July 14 – August 15
