Architectural Design Studio (Pre-College)
Students are introduced to the field of architecture through a studio project for a public building in New York City. They address complex urban and architectural spatial problems through field observation, architectural drawing, and model making. They acquire technical skills and develop the understanding of scale, form and spatial relationships needed to interpret the built environment. Students divide their time between designing in the studio, learning to analyze and represent space, and gaining on-site experience on field trips to locations in New York City.
