HiArch Pre-College Architecture Workshop
July 15–20, 2013
HiArch (pronounced "Hi Arc") is UIC's summer architecture workshop for high school students. Over the course of one week, HiArch introduces its participants to architectural ways of creating and producing objects.
In the HiArch studio, participants focus on five different types of making, from analog processes, like drawing and hand modeling, to digital ones, like 3D-printing and laser cutting. By 4pm each day, every HiArch participant will have designed and made something new. Participants also gain exposure to the field of architecture through lectures by invited faculty and other working designers. On Saturday, July 20, participants' family and friends are invited to the School of Architecture to view an exhibit of work from HiArch and celebrate the participants' acheivement.
The discounted "early bird" registration deadline for HiArch is May 15, 2013. For more information, visit the Registration page.
