New Summer Design Studio Studio

Apply Now!

The School of Architecture is proud to announce an in-depth four-week summer program offering high school and college students an opportunity to learn more about architecture, landscape architecture, and Boston’s rich design culture. From its historic 18th century North End, to the 19th century Back Bay and South End, and the modern post-war city that has transformed the landscape once again, Boston is an incredible laboratory for understanding the past and planning for the future.

This exciting new program includes lectures and interviews with leading professionals, policymakers, and developers. It also includes a wide range of field trips and office visits around the region. Students will take one course in the design studio, where they will each have a dedicated personal workspace, and learn drawing, model-making, and basic design skills. The second lecture/ seminar course will introduce students to the history of design issues in the region, and how contemporary design professionals engage and address them. The two courses will allow students to earn 6 semester hours of college credit.

This program is specifically designed as an introduction to architecture and landscape architecture for high school and college students who are considering applying to the School of Architecture, or transferring into it from other college majors.
