Studio placement and transfer credits for architecture courses will be awarded based on portfolio evaluation. Submit 10-15 pieces of your best work including a range of coursework and/or personal projects. Submissions may be uploaded in multi-page PDFs, if necessary (10MB each).
Things to consider:
- Organize and label projects by course, sorted from earliest to most recent course taken.
- We need to see the specific work you did in each course.
- Don’t overemphasize hand drawing. Computer drafting/drawing is more important in determining transfer placements.
- Clearly identify group projects and identify the work you did in these group projects.
- Submit your portfolio early so that you can be considered for the Woodbury Prize.
- Critical Thinking:
- Written briefs gives access to the ideas developed in the project
- Relationships between 2D, 3D and written text

- Technically correct plans and sections
- Indication of deferential wall and roof assemblies, enclosures, and openings
- Range of media includes computer drawing, physical and digital models, and hand drawing (sketches/photographs). Familiarity with AutoCAD, 3DStudioMAX, Rhino or an equivalent software.
