In Their Own Words

Kyle Bilot, Former LLC Mentor:
“The Architecture LLC gives students the unique learning opportunity to prepare for their future design studios through hands-on site visits, building analysis, as well as chances to work closely with SARUP faculty and local firms.”

Giuseppe Mazzone, LLC Faculty: arch2
“Thanks to a careful composition of the LLC syllabi, the Architecture LLC aims to enhance the quality of the learning process. We don’t want to just teach, but engage students in an active approach to architecture, showing them how to translate their own ideas into physical shapes.”
