Foundations In Architecture courses are organized to revolve around the time periods of historical architecture. Courses are designed to work across all age groups. This will allow students at different grades to be studying the same information. Families can then study together grasping concepts and creating projects within the same historical period. Each course is 32 weeks in length. The first semester will study ancient to revival design. The second semester will study industrial revolution to the present. The courses are open enrollment.
There is no prerequisite for each course. Our program weaves multiple topics within the context of architectural education.
The courses are hybrids with physical materials and online content. The courses are arranged like college. They are organized in weeks, so everyone can keep track. Each week has reading, videos, short answers, essay or a project. The high school students have online quizzes/ exams for reading comprehension. We prefer to receive assignments for feedback, but that is up to the parent. The amount of time varies depending on the student. Each week is design with a workload of 3-4 hours (High School) and 2 hours for all others. It’s all at your pace.
