Based on the approach in Penn’s Undergraduate Architecture program, you are encouraged to develop a unique creative imagination while learning specific architectural design skills. Projects are explored in the space between your potentially boundless ideas, the limitations of contemporary design tools and the physical reality of Philadelphia’s man-made and natural environment.
Offered by the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, the summer architecture program for high school students prepares you for college admissions as you experience college life and create your portfolio. Working with UPenn faculty, you will experiment with different disciplines and learn new skills, using the city of Philadelphia’s historic and modern architecture for inspiration. The courses are similar to those offered by the University of Pennsylvania Architecture Program, but are sequenced and paced for the age and experience of high school students.
