Considering studies and a career in architecture, or just curious about building, design, and construction? Learn to think like an architect at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture’s 2022 Summer Career Lab in Architecture.

The Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York is restarting its Summer Career Lab in Architecture in 2022. Building upon the professionally accredited curriculum of New York City’s original, flagship public school of architecture, the Summer Career Lab introduces architectural practice, theory, making, and thinking to those considering a career in the field. Running for four weeks within a state-of-the art facility and taught by Spitzer School  faculty, alumni, and graduate students, the Summer Career Lab will be organized around a diverse set of events and exercises including:


  • Lectures on architectural fundamentals 
  • Workshops on drawing and making 
  • One-on-one critiques and collective pin-up reviews 
  • Field trips and on-site work across the city, including in City College’s historic Manhattanville and Hamilton Heights neighborhoods
  • Presentations from award-winning architects, historians, and designers 
  • Office tours 
  • And much more . . .  

With an emphasis on contemporary architectural thinking and practice, the Summer Career Lab curriculum will dialogue with digital fabrication and computer-aided design, ecologically attuned and sustainable thinking, interdisciplinary research, and architecture in/as cultural discourse. 

Full-time and in-person, the 2022 Summer Career Lab in Architecture will provide its participants—high school, collegiate, or professional—with the experience needed to make an informed career choice, with work useful in application portfolios for study, and with skills immediately applicable in future design endeavors. 

  • Ages 16 and up
  • In person
  • Vaccination required
  • Cost: $2,525

Participants will receive a small kit of materials.
