College Now Summer Architecture and Urban Design Immersion Program

Participants of the Architecture and Urban Design Immersion Program will approach architecture and urban design disciplines through a cross-disciplinary lens that studies cultural diversity embodied by New York City. By linking historical, cultural, and political context to physical forms of buildings and urban spaces, the program will deepen their appreciation for how architecture can engage with various disciplines to reshape our built environments and experiences. Strategies to succeed in college, collaboration and leadership in groups, and effective oral and written communication skills are also emphasized through the series of supported laboratory workshops, field trips, interface with guest lecturers and community members, and the final showcase built into the curriculum. Upon successful completion of this program, participants will earn 2 college credits transferable toward the ARCH1101: Introduction to Architecture course offered at the NYC College of Technology (City Tech).
