THIS IS AN APPLICATION PROCESS; NOT A REGISTRATION! THIS DOES NOT SECURE OR RESERVE A SPOT IN THE PROGRAM. Decision letters will be sent via email upon receipt of the application and after faculty review. This program is an introduction to the theory of architecture, computing and simulation, freehand and extreme drawing, building ecologies and design. There will be field trips and career counseling. Afternoons will have individually critiqued (tutored) design studios, group and individual projects, reviews and public presentations. High school students entering 10th, 11th and 12th grade in the fall who are considering studies in architecture or design with a curiosity about the world in which we live, as well as an interest in art culture, and new ideas are encouraged to apply. Students who have completed this program have gone on to apply to the Architecture major offered by Rensselaer's School of Architecture.
