London OR Live Online
The in-person experience is fully sold out. You can now only register for the Live Online version of this experience which begins on 12th August.
The Young Architect Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working as an architect in London.
Over the course of 15 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of architecture that one can imagine: visiting ground-breaking architecture and urban design firms and designing your own sustainable city; conducting site visits and completing a series of design projects in a studio setting under the guidance of senior architects; receiving leading architects at a private view of your exhibition, a curation of all your designs from the Summer Experience.
Also available on the Summer Experience are experiences of cutting-edge architectural software, including 3-D designs, smart technology and augmented reality and an immersive visit to the University of Cambridge.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful architect.
