The Architecture Summer Institute (ASI) is a staple of the Institute of Construction and Design (IDaC) under FAU’s School of Architecture. Every year we gather and host students from all over and expose them to the academic world of architecture and design. 

Throughout the program, students will produce a variety of work that can be used as part of a portfolio when applying to colleges. Students will have the opportunity to display and participate in a final critique of their work. Enrollment is on a first-come, first served basis and space is limited.

Participants will engage in space planning, drawing, and model building and will also have the opportunity to take field trips to visit local architecture firms. In the Ft Lauderdale Campus participants will be engaging with cutting edge digital fabrication technologies which are the future of architectural education and the industry at large. Interaction with faculty members and upper division architecture students help to provide a foundation for a memorable architectural school experience.
