- This summer's [IN]ARCH program is being led by David Orkand, director of Atelier DOA. Orkand returned to California to set up his architectural practice after having spent four years living in Tokyo as a Monbukagakusho Fellow in the Tsukamoto Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He spent the two years prior to this living in Madrid, working for Mansilla+Tuñón Arquitectos. Orkand has taught architecture and architectural theory at Princeton University, UC Berkeley, and California College of the Arts. He earned his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design and an M.Arch from Princeton Unviersity. His [IN]ARCH is an intensive six-week program designed to immerse students in the foundational theories and practices of architectural design. The program is structured as an introduction to studio culture and architectural discourse, and serves as a vehicle for further academic pursuits within the field.
- [IN]ARCH ADV is an intermediate architectural studio for current architecture majors or recent architecture graduates formulated to push the boundaries of architectural thinking and design. The studios are formal, intensive and structured for experimentation with physical ideas. Participants will make models (physical and digital), draw, photograph, collage, montage, diagram, print, scan, map and write as they work. The studio becomes a place for participants to transform thoughts and ideas into form. The lead this summer will be Keith Plymale, a continuing lecturer in architecture at UC Berkeley and founding partner of the San Francisco-based Volume21: Office for Architecture.
- Disc* is an immersive five-week summer program for currently enrolled college students that explores an interdisciplinary and multi-scalar approach to design and analysis in the urban environment. Disc* participants engage in the discourses of urban innovation, and develop creative solutions to tackle the urgent challenges global cities face today. The Director of the program is Gabriel Kaprielian, a designer, urbanist, and artist based in the Bay Area. With degrees in both architecture and city planning, his creative work and research focus on resilient cities, sustainable design, emergent technologies, and digital fabrication.
