Immersion Program

Learn, live, and work where history is made.

Geared to college-level participants and adults interested in deepening their understanding of the architectural discipline, this experience provides an opportunity to learn about architecture side-by-side with faculty and students at The School of Architecture.

During the program, participants will investigate the basics of design and representation, a brief history of Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri, the stunning campuses, the evolution of the shelter program and the basics of 3D Architectural Modeling. During the studio, the various phases of the architectural design process are navigated; architectural drawing and 3-dimensional modeling techniques are explored. Participants design an architectural project responding to a design challenge and the final projects are presented and reviewed by faculty and students.

The School’s small scale facilitates an individualized experience and fosters a close and dynamic relationship between the participants, M. Arch. students, faculty, scholars, visiting lecturers and staff.

Participants will assist in hosting key events, may create design identities for campus initiatives, help prepare meals, garden in on-campus gardens, perform music or exhibit design projects to an invited audience.

The School of Architecture is pleased to offer an 8-week Immersion experience at the legendary Cosanti and Arcosanti campuses.


Investigate, discover, and participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
