2021 Summer Career Academy in Architecture & Interior Design

The Summer Career Academy in Architecture and Interior Design at UTSA is scheduled from July 6th-29th

 

Application Deadline is June 1st, 2021, Payment Deadline is June 15th, 2021.

 

The Summer Career Academy at UTSA offers a four-week introduction to the design careers and education of architects and interior designers. Taught by faculty of the Department of Architecture, the Summer Academy provides insight into the creative process and professional practice of architecture and interior design. Participation in the program is intended to help high school and college students ponder whether architecture or interior design is right for them. Previous design experience is not required. Curiosity is the only prerequisite.

 

Design & Career Exploration

Classes are held remotely via Zoom. Academy participants will be introduced to many of the challenges and rewards involved in creating the designed environments. The four-week program will include visual and interactive design exercises that engage personal exploration in introducing basic design skills such as: sketching, creative and spatial thinking, digital modeling, and the organization of architectural information. Special presentations will connect you to local architecture and interior design professionals. We will utilize Zoom and SketchUp Make. Both are free and can run on most web browsers.

 

UTSA Summer Academy participants will:

  • develop an appreciation of the designed environment
  • become familiar with actual construction and design practice
  • explore drawing, modeling, and design thinking
  • explore creative and visual thinking skills
  • utilize observation and communication skills
  • gain clarity about the education of design professions
