Digital design will be paired with hand sketching and a Norwich 'Sketchbox' will be mailed to each student. Each day students will explore their project through the application of a different modeling technique and architectural concept.
    Norwich Campus
    Morning Sessions
    will be devoted to learning the virtual modeling tools, beginning with technical demonstrations by instructors, followed by labs in small studio teams. 
    Vermont
    Afternoon Sessions
    will begin with lectures by NU professors, followed by individual project work, 1-on-1 desk critiques with instructors and ending with daily 'pin-up' presentations to the class.
    At the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of work they will display and present at a public virtual exhibit attended by parents, professors and local architects.  

    Applications will be reviewed starting April 11th. To ensure high quality interaction with the faculty, we have limited the number of students we can accept. Students accepted into the program will be informed and can secure their spot by paying the enrollment fee. Students who apply after all spots have been filled will be notified and placed on a wait list.
