UCLA Architecture & Urban Design is pleased to present our 2014 Summer offerings that will continue to engage students in rigorous and innovative design. UCLA A.UD Summer Programs will provide unique opportunities for college students, professionals, and high school students to explore architecture and design with cutting-edge designers and practitioners, to learn and use the most dynamic software, work with fellow colleagues from a wide range of backgrounds, and to experience summer in Los Angeles on the UCLA campus.

The UCLA A.UD SUMMER Teen ArchStudio program is open to current high school students. This program is an intensive, two-week full-time summer architecture experience. Before enrolling in the program, you should be fully aware of the time commitment and course workload inherent in a program of this nature. This non-residential program exposes high school students to the architecture discipline, giving them a sense of the life of a college student and the chance to experience the profession through the design of a project, fieldtrips to landmark buildings and Los Angeles architectural offices.

Students receive mentorship from current UCLA Architecture and Urban Design students, alumni, and faculty. Participants have the opportunity to utilize the renowned facilities of the UCLA Architecture and Urban Design including the campus at large, as well as experience the urban life of Los Angeles. 

The program is structured around the experience of a design studio typically offered within the curricula of an undergraduate program. Studio focuses on developing design skills through space making and its drawing representation. Individual and group projects generate a dynamic and productive environment designed to help students in their decision making process to consider studies in architecture or other design related fields.

 

Teen ArchStudio provides students with the opportunity to learn about creating a portfolio and exposure to local architects and designers through a Portfolio Workshop and Career Symposium.

Teen ArchStudio activities include:

  • create space by designing brief projects
  • learn drawing and modeling techniques
  • participate in group and one-on-one instruction led by architects and designers
  • participate in group reviews and critiques and present your projects to guest designers, critics, and instructors
  • access to UCLA’s Arts and Architecture Library

Field trips of significant architectural and design sites in Los Angels take place each week. 

Lecture Series
Local and visiting architects, designers, and talented professionals in related fields are invited to present their work. A Q&A session following each lecture gives students the opportunity to learn more about each guest through their own perspective

Portfolio Workshop and Career Symposium exposes students to the latest developments in the discipline as well as information to assist them to create a portfolio for application to undergraduate programs.

Final Review and Exhibition

The last day of the program is dedicated to reviewing the students’ work in the group demonstration format. Faculty members from different Los Angeles architecture schools are invited to contribute to the discussion of each individual student’s work, promoting a dynamic conversation that enhances architectural production at large.


The UCLA A.UD SUMMER Teen ArchStudio program is open to current high school students. This program is an intensive, two-week full-time summer architecture experience. Before enrolling in the program, you should be fully aware of the time commitment and course workload inherent in a program of this nature.
