Buildings are all around us. From massive skyscrapers to cathedrals to tiny homes, humans are constantly innovating and building. Throughout history, cultures have distinguished themselves by the structures they build. Whether it’s Neuschwanstein Castle, the Roman Aqueducts, or the Golden Gate Bridge, we are defined by how we are able to manipulate the landscape and material at our disposal.


In this class, we will focus on the current trends in architecture, as well as feature famous historical structures. Students will learn about different aspects of architecture, including specific terminology and construction standards. The majority of our class will be spent teaching the students how to design their own buildings, both with hand drafting and computer assisted drafting.


A computer is required for class each week.

All classes are full-year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for the Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
