The Illinois School of Architecture announces the dates for the Summer 2015 Discover Architecture Program for high school students. Two program sessions will be offered:

Session I: Sunday, June 14 – Saturday, June 27, 2015
Session II: Sunday, July 5 – Saturday, July 18, 2015

Discover Architecture is a two-week program offered by the Illinois School of Architecture that provides high school students and beginning college students the opportunity to be introduced to architectural graphics, design, and modeling. Discover Architecture exposes
students to a university atmosphere, complete with residence hall living, faculty lectures, and architectural studio.

Throughout the two-week session, students engage in a series of exercises including drafting, modeling, composition, design, and presentation, which lead to a comprehensive architectural design project.
