Summer Architecture Career Lab
New York, New York 10031
Considering studies and a career in architecture, or just curious about building, design, and construction? Learn to think like an architect at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture’s 2023 Summer Career Lab in Architecture.
The Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York is now seeking applicants for its 2023 Summer Career Lab in Architecture. Building upon the professionally accredited curriculum of New York City’s original, flagship public school of architecture, the Summer Career Lab introduces architectural practice, theory, making, and thinking to those considering a career in the field. Running for four weeks within a state-of-the art facility and taught by Spitzer School faculty, alumni, and graduate students, the Summer Career Lab will be organized around a diverse set of events and exercises including:
Lectures on architectural fundamentals
Workshops on drawing and making
One-on-one critiques and collective pin-up reviews
Field trips and on-site work across the city, including in City College’s historic Manhattanville and Hamilton Heights neighborhoods
Presentations from award-winning architects, historians, and designers
And much more
With an emphasis on contemporary architectural thinking and practice, the Summer Career Lab curriculum will dialogue with digital fabrication and computer-aided design, ecologically attuned and sustainable thinking, interdisciplinary research, and architecture in/as cultural discourse.
Full-time and in-person, the Summer Career Lab in Architecture will provide its participants—high school, collegiate, or professional—with the experience needed to make an informed career choice, with work useful in application portfolios for study, and with skills immediately applicable in future design endeavors.
