Summer Studio in Classical Architecture
Applicants are usually informed of the ICAA’s decision about two weeks after the application deadline.
You will need to provide some of your own materials. The full list of materials required will be sent to you one month in advance of the program starting.
The New York City Subway is affordable and accessible. Alternatively, if you find accommodation close to the ICAA offices, you can walk to class each day.
A few meals are provided, but you will have to purchase the majority of your own meals. If meals are provided, ICAA staff will be sure to contact you before ordering food to make sure any dietary requirements are covered.
Most classes start at 9:00 AM, but you will be sent a full schedule at least one month before the start of the program.
It depends on the schedule, but usually you can leave between 6:00 and 7:00 PM if there is not an evening lecture. During the final week, the ICAA holds open studio until 9:00 PM.
There is a field trip each Saturday, and the office is closed on Sundays. There will also be no class on July 4th.
You should have professional clothes available for the office visits and final review, otherwise please dress as you wish.
The ICAA has a list of housing options, that can be sent to you if needed.
The ICAA welcomes students and professionals from across the world, and international scholarship applications are encouraged. In advance of applying, please note that the ICAA cannot provide any paperwork or assistance with visa applications.
Most of the students in the Summer Studio in Classical Architecture are undergraduate or graduate students, or postgraduates seeking to apply to graduate school, in architecture, interior design, or related fields. Students with academic backgrounds in other fields are also encouraged to apply. While high school students and professionals do not typically join the Summer Studio, emerging professionals and high school juniors or seniors with a preexisting background in classical architecture are also welcome to apply for the program.
