At MICA, Architectural Design students enter a dialogue about the spacial, social and cultural considerations of each project. They form allies with the fine arts and design disciplines, which are conveniently housed under then same MICA roof.
Architectural Design students emerge from the program as nimble, compelling, and thoughtful creatives. They are skilled balancers, balancing the complexity of architecture as a language, and the sophistication required of an architectural designer. The program covers a trifecta of themes, including:
- spatial and formal, studied through materiality and dimension
- social and cultural studied through meaning and metaphor; and
- professional practice studied through research, outreach, and practice.
Students focus on one theme each year. Consider them the necessary building blocks for creating multi-dimensional skills to create architectural ideas that are at the intersection of 2D and 3D media.
