Geared towards post-baccalaureates, the Summer [IN]STITUTE introduces participants with no prior experience in design to the culture of planning and architecture studios. It also offers an advanced cohort for intermediate architecture students. Institute graduates emerge from the program with a clearer view of the discipline as well as a polished portfolio, both valuable advantages when applying to graduate programs.
- [IN]ARCH ADV is an advanced architectural studio for current architecture majors or recent architecture graduates formulated to push the boundaries of architectural thinking and design. The architecture studios are formal, intensive and structured for experimentation with physical ideas. The studio places emphasis on an iterative process and deploys three recurring methods for making: analog drawing and photomontage, to connect the eye's critical observations to the hand's critical description; digital modeling, to explore conceptual ideas through 3D digital models; and physical modeling, to develop and embody material ideas in model form using the Digital Fabrication Lab.
- [IN]ARCH is an introductory studio course designed to help participants cross the threshold into the world of architectural design. The course will introduce students to the environment of architectural production and to help them prepare material for further study in the field. The program structure replicates the graduate school experience: an intensive design studio complemented by instruction in both analog and digital media tools, lectures by award-winning faculty and professionals, field trips, and introductions to recent developments in the discipline. No prior experience in design is necessary.
- [IN]CITY is a comprehensive six week introduction to the study and practice of urban planning through the lens of sustainability. [IN]CITY projects are real projects with actual clients who represent a diverse group of stakeholder organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Students develop in-depth recommendations, analyses and proposals for these client projects, which run the gamut of planning practice: housing and design, bike mobility and transportation, public health and environmental justice, community development and gentrification, urban design, climate action and art in public spaces. In doing so, participants have an opportunity to influence planning in the Bay Area by exploring institutional, political, social, economic and environmental policy challenges.
- The [IN]LAND program introduces students to the different scales and aspects of landscape architecture and environmental planning. “People and Processes” describes the overall theme for the program, in which students investigate how to evince and design for social and natural processes in an urban environment. Throughout the program, field trips enhance students' understanding of the studio projects. The media course complements the studio course by allowing students to develop their representation skills, both hand (analog) and digital. The lecture series consists of professors and practicing professionals, who will expose the students to the wide variety of professional and academic avenues that can be taken within the disciplines of landscape architecture and environmental planning. A weekly section meets to discuss the lecture and reading assignments, allowing students to develop their skills of critical discussion and knowledge sharing.
