Architectural Expression

Course Description:
This architecture and design program involves a series of exercises that incorporate issues of critical thinking, aesthetics, structural integrity, and the inherent properties of material. There will be substantial readings that corresponded to the curriculum. Drawing exercises will be conducted, and formal architectural theory will be investigated. There will be visits to sites of architectural interest. Students will be assigned two major and concurrent design projects which will culminate in an exhibition, presentation, and criticism that will take place at the end of the program. Credits are elective in nature and are applicable to future degree study at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York.

Student Testimonial:


I would like to express my gratitude for the wonderful experience I was able to have this summer at the CCNY College Now Architecture program from meeting new people, extending my network, and having  more hands on opportunity with the tools provided at the program.

I didn't want to rush into a career I wasn't experienced in but this summer allowed me to get a closer look at what college students at the CCNY day to day look like in studio. I wouldn’t have imagined myself working with large drafting boards and expanding my skills with elevation, section, and top view of any space I’m in up until this summer. The complexity of drafting was knowledge gained through your great faculty members including professor Philip and his TA’s.  

I completed several mini projects that allowed me to exercise creativity and thinking outside the box more of the time. I was able to learn how to share, disagree, and come to consensus on ideas or point of views with handling a team work based project. Outside of the academics I appreciate the safe environment the program had, allowing me to meet new fellow peers making several memories together. 

Once again thank you for directing a program that grants several opportunities to students like myself who not only get a new experience but become slightly more certain to pursuit an architecture career.
