HiArch Summer High School Architecture Workshop
HiArch is UIC's introductory summer architecture program for current high school students. The program introduces students to architectural ways of thinking and making through class tutorials, studio time, one-on-one desk critiques, and group discussions. Students will develop both analog and digital skills, from drawing and building models by hand to digital drafting and computer modeling. They will also gain exposure to the field of architecture through guest lectures and panel discussions with faculty and local designers. The program concludes each year with an exhibit of students' work and celebration of their achievements with family and friends at the School of Architecture.
Week 1: July 13-17, 2020
Week 2, Model-Making Workshop: July 20-24, 2020
