Architectural Studies

Architecture is an exciting multidisciplinary activity that synthesizes design investigation with historical and cultural perspectives, social responsibility, technical excellence and environmental leadership. In this course, you’ll have a chance to explore these concepts through a sequence of architectural design prompts. You’ll investigate design issues through the traditional processes of model making and drawing and also learn about the latest software tools. Course material will focus on developing your visual representation and verbal presentation skills, concluding with a presentation of your work to guests from the Seattle architecture community. Come explore whether an architecture career might be in your future!
