CED's 2017 Summer [IN]STITUTE is accepting applications for [IN]ARCH and [IN]ARCH ADV, two summer intensives designed for current B.Arch students or post-baccalaureates who are considering pursuing an M.Arch degree. The architecture cohorts join landscape architecture students in [IN]LAND and sustainable city planning students in [IN]CITY for an Institute-wide lecture series, a Dean's Roundtable, and other opportunities for cross-pollination throughout the six week program.
Architecture faculty Keith Plymale is the academic lead for [IN]ARCH ADV, an advanced architectural that places emphasis on an iterative process and deploys three recurring methods for making: analog drawing and photomontage, to connect the eye's critical observations to the hand's critical description; digital modeling, to explore conceptual ideas through 3D digital models; and physical modeling, to develop and embody material ideas in model form using the Digital Fabrication Lab. The program establishes and fortifies linnks between architecture and the allied arts, and immerses students in a singularly "Berkeley" approach to the study of architecture.
[IN]ARCH, led by Architecture faculty David Orkand, is an introductory studio course designed to help participants with no previous design experience cross the threshold into the world of architectural design. The program structure replicates the graduate school experience: an immersive design studio complemented by instruction in both analog and digital media tools, lectures by award-winning faculty and professionals, and site visits.
Participants emerge from both programs in a stronger position in terms of skill set and portfolio development when applying to M.Arch programs.
The domestic application deadline has been extended to June 1. Visit Slideroom to submit an application.
