Summer Architecture Program

If you are inspired by New York City's world famous architecture, you may want to study at one of its' world famous schools of architecture: the City College of New York. CCNY's College Now Summer Architecture Program offers rigorous coursework on the basics of architecture; critical thinking, aesthetics, structural integrity and the inherent properties of material. Drawing exercises and formal architectural theory provide a full immersion in this exciting field. Visits to sites of architectural interest and museums, such as The Cloisters and the Museum of Modern Art, round out the semester. In the 6-credit General Architecture Elective you will be assigned two major and concurrent design projects. The first involves studying and mapping two places in a comparison and contrast that culminates in a visual presentation. The second is a more traditional architectural design project in which you will build a model of a site, and then design a "habitat" for a particular client.
