2018 Summer Career Academy in Architecture & Interior Design

The Summer Career Academy in Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Texas at San Antonio offers a two-week summer introduction to the design careers and education of architects and interior designers. Taught by faculty members of the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, the Summer Academy provides hands-on insight into the creative and professional practice of architecture and interior design. It 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

Held in the design studios of UTSA’s College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, participants will be introduced to many of the challenges and rewards involved in creating the designed environment. Within a short walk, downtown San Antonio will be our laboratory for both visual and hands-on design exercises that engage personal exploration in introducing basic design skills such as: sketching, creative and spatial thinking, model construction, photography, and the organization of architectural information. Field trips will take you to local architecture and design firms and construction projects, as well as significant San Antonio architecture.

 

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
  • visit offices of design professionals & construction sites
  • gain clarity about the education of design professions
