Created as a rigorous introduction to the field of architecture, the Tyler Architecture Institute welcomes 10th, 11th and 12th-grade students. Through collaborative design problems, faculty presentations, virtual site visits and hands-on projects, students are introduced to methods of architectural representation and design and processes related to constructing and understanding the built environment. Students will leave the program with new skills and insight into the many college degree pathways and professions within this exciting field.
The Architecture Institute is currently on a waitlist, having reached the maximum enrollment. We will be adding a second session of the program running July 20 - 31 as soon as our waitlist hits the minimum necessary enrollment to run. We encourage you to sign-up on the waitlist HERE.
In order to ensure the continued safety of all of our students, faculty and staff, we have decided to host our programs online for summer 2020. Each of our programs has been adapted specifically for online learning to allow students to engage in hands-on, project-based learning from the safety of their homes. Our online programs are designed to be as interactive as possible and will include a mix of:
> Live face-to-face instruction and presentations with your instructors
> Time for hands-on art making and projects, both independently and in small groups
> Critique and discussion of projects with your instructors and classmates
> Virtual studio visits and guest lectures by practicing professionals
> Online resources such as virtual museum tours, site visits and demonstration videos
> Optional social activities allowing you to connect with your creative peers
> A virtual final exhibition to showcase the work you've created with family, friends and fellow pre-college classmates
