“The program took us through the different steps in the architectural design process as well as talking about architecture as a whole. I liked how the classes taught us at a good pace, manageable but not too easy, and always presented a new challenge to get us thinking in a new way. Sam was a great teacher that encouraged us and helped us along to create great models and drawings.”
“I liked that the lessons and teaching aspect of the class was short and concise. It was also integrated into times when we were building. The program was very independent which I think is important, but I also learned a lot from the teacher.”
“The architecture program was very hands-on and centered around miscellaneous outdoor spaces. Sam was supportive and always had great ideas for our structures. I particularly enjoyed the evolution of our structures and the positive attitudes of my peers.”
