Since September 2020, the Architecture Department has led a portfolio review process for our 3rd Year B.S. IA and M.Arch students, and our 4th Year M.Arch students. Our goal for this initiative is to 1) build a culture of support for our students as they develop their folios, 2) to increase faculty conversations around what we are collectively teaching, and 3) get our best students’ folios out to leading firms to share what our students are doing. Through this collective effort, 17 folios were given awards.
Many thanks to the faculty and alumni that have given their time and insight to our students!
