About Architecture: Summer at Penn

The architecture studio at Architecture: Summer at Penn introduces the fundamentals of design through two-dimensional and three-dimensional exercises. Assignments in freehand drawing, technical drawing, and model building will allow students to explore various techniques and materials. Sketchbooks will also be kept to further observational skills and to record ideas. The studio begins with an abstract exercise to familiarize the students with the essentials of critical thinking and their creative strengths. The summer camp's main project is to design a space on the University of Pennsylvania campus.

Go from basic architectural design process to hand drawing to creating digital models you can include in your portfolio. Then you'll go beyond design and look into future career opportunities and what it means to be an architect. With a limited number of students per studio, you'll receive one-on-one personal attention from experienced architects and Penn faculty every day. The summer camp's curriculum is taken from undergraduate Penn courses, giving you a head start in this field while you are still in high school. Plus, you will visit local architecture firms so you can speak with today's industry leaders. Finally, all student work is displayed in a final exhibition in Penn's art gallery which takes place on the last Friday of the session.
