High School Residency: Studio 2

High School Residency: Studio 2 is for students in grades 11 or 12 who are preparing for admission to an architecture, design or art school. During the five-day intensive skill-building program, students will create original, portfolio-worthy work. This course is led by a licensed teaching architect, who will guide studio explorations that are comparable to a first-year studio foundation course, which is a typical requirement in undergraduate programs in architecture, design and visual art. Students will enjoy access to Fallingwater and opportunities for reflective writing and sketching from observation.

Features

  • Architecture and design exercises with hands-on drawing and design projects inspired by Fallingwater
  • In-depth, scholarly discussions and applications of Wright’s principles of organic architecture
  • Career exploration
