Students typically receive one-to-one technical instruction on digital modeling, drawing representation, rendering, CNC milling, 3D printing, laser cutting, and robotics.
The work will culminate in a design exhibition with invited Pratt faculty and documented in an individually developed portfolio which prepares students to apply for graduate architecture school.
