This year’s SCI-Arc Undergraduate Thesis Weekend will be held on April 23–24, 2021. This year will culminate in an immersive, Undergraduate Thesis Weekend, featuring live-broadcast reviews, so friends and family from all over the world will have the opportunity to tune in and experience the boundary-pushing work of SCI-Arc’s 2021 Undergraduate Thesis class. SCI-Arc has also launched a dedicated Undergraduate Thesis 2021 website to preview review schedule, participating juror list, livestream session links, student work, and more.
Each year, Undergraduate Thesis at SCI-Arc prepares students to articulate, propose, and defend their ideas and positions on architecture as well as engage with professionals as peers and colleagues. In their final semester of design studio, students complete the production of a year-long thesis project, which addresses a position in relation to contemporary architectural discourse and presents a highly developed building design project. This year, fifth-year students will show their completed projects during an online Undergraduate Thesis Weekend, a public platform during which over 70 jurors, critics, and architecture professionals from around the globe converge to discuss, debate, and dispute emerging questions in architecture.
