Discover Architecture is a two-week, residential, pre-college program offered by the Illinois School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. The purpose of the program is to introduce high-school students and recent graduates to the discipline of architecture both as a profession and as a field of academic endeavor. Students will learn about architectural drawing, physical modeling, freehand sketching, and other tools of the architectural trade. Upon completion, each student leaves not only with this knowledge, but with drawings and photographs to form the basis of his/her portfolio.
Students work in studios, learn in lecture halls, and live in dorms on campus in preparation for the college experience. Days are spent learning from faculty in both classroom and studio environments, with a focus on design studio work. Evenings focus on architectural and social activities which reinforce the knowledge developed through the course of the program. Cumulatively, the activities are rigorous, with programming for twelve hours per day for the entire two-week period. Discover Architecture is focused not only on helping prospective students decide if they may wish to pursue architecture as their field of chosen endeavor, but also on giving students new to architecture a critical “head start” on their undergraduate careers.
