Offered to high school students entering 11th or 12th grades, this intensive summer program is for college credit and allows students to explore Woodbury University’s architecture and interior architecture disciplines. Design Lab introduces high school students to principles of experimentation and design. Taught by inspired design faculty, the course is organized within a framework of thinking, drawing and making.
Students are immersed in a studio environment and will work in on-campus computer and digital fabrication labs, experimenting with 3D printing and laser cutting, and learning about architecture and interior architecture through traditional and digital hand drawing, material experimentation, and model-making exercises. The course explores the practice and promise of alternative methods of design thinking. Students design within different techniques to create two dimensional and three dimensional architectural studies. These become models that explore space, form, and elements of architectural design. The Design Lab also explores fundamental architectural problems like constructing an arch, designing cantilevers, or building dome structures. Basic structural ideas are considered throughout the design process.

Woodbury recognizes physical and mental disabilities that include mobility, sensory, health, psychological, and learning disabilities, and provides reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities once the disability is adequately documented. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to make his/her child’s disability known at the time of enrollment and provide appropriate documentation and evaluations to support the accommodations requested. The University, however, is unable to make accommodations that are unduly burdensome or that fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity.
