Cognate Categories


The Architecture Design & Theory Cognate introduces students to design thinking through a hands-on projects. Drawing skills are useful but not necessary, as the objective is to engage in the conceptual process of architectural design. Students then choose among a selection of lecture, seminar and travel courses to complete the cognate in order to develop an intellectual framework for the critical evaluation of architecture and its impact on individuals and communities.
