Graduate Thesis 2020

Graduate Thesis at SCI-Arc is the school’s largest annual event. Spanning three days of school-wide presentations, reviews, and more, Graduate Thesis Weekend invites 100 jurors and critics from all over the world to converge in a symposium-like forum where students, architects, urbanists, theorists, artists, academics, deans, and chairs gather to consider, debate, and dispute emerging questions in architecture.

Miniatures

Wednesday July 8th

Join SCI-Arc for Miniatures, a public display of the 2020 SCI-Arc Graduate Thesis program students’ tangible studies for future architecture proposals. This presentation will feature initial projects rendered in miniature form. The miniature, as opposed to a model, describes the idea of an architectural proposal that is more attuned to concepts of context, building scale, and architectural detail instead of an abstract investigation. Over the course of the summer semester, graduate students will build upon their miniatures to realize their final thesis projects, which will be presented in September.

Midterm

Wednesday August 12th

Graduate Thesis Midterms serve as a halfway point for SCI-Arc M.Arch students to evaluate progress on their thesis projects through engaged feedback from SCI-Arc faculty and leadership, noted guest critics, and more.

Final Reviews

September 2020

During Graduate Thesis reviews, students defend their theses to world-renowned guest reviewers, providing a complex, in-depth look at the work made and presented by the thesis class. Each year SCI-Arc invites over 100 distinguished local and international architects, urbanists, theorists, deans, and chairs from around the globe to engage with graduating M.Arch students about their final design projects.
