THERE IS STILL TIME TO REGISTER!!!
STUDENTS ENTERING 10TH GRADE AN BEYOND ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND THE TYLER ARCHITECTURE INSTITUTE 2013.
The mission of an architect, and architecture as a whole, should be to create aesthetically enriching built environments for the needs of human beings, to revitalize the urban fabric and to serve as stewards of the global environment.
To that end, we have created an introduction to the field of architecture.
Through design problems, lectures and site visits, students will come to understand that architecture is a creative search based both on imagination and precedents, as well as a reflective process instilling within the students the notion that self-criticism and motivation are their greatest resources. Students are encouraged to keep a daily sketchbook of their observations, a valuable resource for college admission portfolio work.
9:30am to 4:00 pm
Monday, July 8, 2013 to Friday, July 19, 2013

Elements of Architectural Representation
Architecture is rooted in communication. Although writing and speaking are integral aspects of the profession, architecture remains a visual discipline. Through drawings, models, and other forms of visual representation, architects transform ideas into three-dimensional space. The Architecture Institute morning session will serve as an introduction to traditional and emerging representational techniques, and engage students in both group and individual design assignments.
Video Series / Architecture of Philadelphia Tours
In the first afternoon session, students will be introduced to a variety of architecture and urban planning themes through a series of short videos. Students will engage in first-hand investigations of buildings and formal concepts through guided walking tours of Temple's campus and center city Philadelphia.
The second afternoon session will approach architectural design as an evolutionary process. Students will be presented with a series of brief 2-D and 3-D design assignments that develop sequentially to form an integrated architectural project. As the project unfolds, each student will work toward the creation of their own unique architectural space with deliberate consideration of both its formal and social qualities. At the conclusion of the project, students will photographically document their work and participate in a portfolio formatting workshop.
