Architecture | Bachelor’s Degree

Bennington College


Architecture at Bennington is the investigation of the potentials of spatial and formal exploration in the built world. Underpinning all of our work is the spirit of vigorous questioning and critical thinking. We approach our work as a studio, incorporating research, observation, analysis, and the testing of ideas through drawings and models. Exercises allow students to explore ways in which meaning is expressed in form, space, and movement. Introductory studios focus on the formation of architectural concepts through spatial investigations. These exercises gradually build into more complex architectural programs organized around particular problems. We work with a broad range of media: pencil and pen, basswood and cardboard, digital modeling and laser cutting.
