About

The Architecture program at the Illinois Institute of Technology begins with an introduction to the history of architecture and to the contemporary profession, helping students understand the variety of paths that their architectural education could follow

Overview

Initial studio assignments at the  Architecture program at the Illinois Institute of Technology  develop communication skills—verbal, graphic, and written—that enable students to navigate their field while also introducing them to the elements that comprise architecture—surface, wall, door, opening, stair, room. 

Content

With an emphasis on how things are made, students will be asked to consider fundamental questions: What is a door? How does its making inform its design? How does its design impact the wall surrounding it? This initial period culminates in the design of a small structure encompassing all of the elements explored in the preceding exercises.
