Chicago Ideas Week Visits IIT Architecture

The IIT College of Architecture will be hosting a "mini-studio" for interested high school students during Chicago Ideas Week October 12-18. The studio is designed to introduce students to the profession of architecture. The workshop will be held on IIT's historic Main Campus, offering unique access to the largest collection of Mies van der Rohe buildings anywhere. The program will consist of instruction in freehand sketching as well as a hands-on project with an emphasis on design through two-dimensional (2-D) representations and three-dimensional (3-D) constructions.

CIW YOU(th) is a unique program that provides 450 high school students from at-risk communities in Chicago direct access to Chicago Ideas Week programming, the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of companies and organizations, and a direct pipeline to our globally recognized speakers for more intimate small group interactions.
