In Introduction to Architecture, students will begin to learn about the world of architecture and how it applies to them. Throughout the course, we will be learning about the design of residential architecture and construction through each student’s own home, the city of Geneva and design projects. Students will complete a set of working drawings which include elevations, floor plans, detail sections and 3D models, board and computer drafting, field trips, hands on projects, and guest speakers are all utilized to help students learn about the various parts of architecture.

Many projects are similar to those found at the college level.
