The virtual SummerLAB program at the Wentworth Institute of Technology connects thinking of architecture to making architecture. Students experience all phases of a complete architectural project--from initial design concepts through development and refinement and including realization as a full-scale construction on a site.
By intertwining thinking and making in the process of design from beginning to end, we convey an understanding, crucial for designers, that making is a form of thinking. The program director and SummerFAB instructors are all experienced members for the Wentworth Institute of Technology architecture community. Each of our staff is dedicated to the importance of design and the role of making in the creation of the built environment. Instructors are immersing designers who received their educations through the WIT Architecture graduate degree program and are proven throughout their years at WIT to be talented high energy designers committed to design excellence and the role of making in architecture. Program attendees will also receive full time support from specialists trained in all modes of fabrication offered here at Wentworth. With a full time staff member dedicated to the craft of making, both by hand and digital areas, program attendees will be exposed learn first hand from knowledgeable professionals.
