UC Berkeley embARC Summer Design Academy: embARC 2017 Now Accepting Applications!

Summer & Holiday Camps

We are excited to announce that the embARC Summer Design Academy at UC Berkeley is now accepting applications for summer 2017! Submit an online application here: cedberkeley.slideroom.com.

embARC is a four week summer design intensive offered by the College of Environmental Design that brings together high school students from diverse backgrounds to explore architecture, urban design and sustainable city planning through three components: an Architecture & Urban Design Studio, a Sustainable City Planning Workshop and a Community Design-Build project.

embARC enables students to:

  • explore architecture, urban design and city planning as possible college majors and careers
  • hone and develop skills through college-level coursework
  • immerse yourself in design studio culture and the college campus experience
  • work in a team environment with peers who have similar interests
  • build a design portfolio to use when applying to college
  • be exposed to actual public policy issues and make a real impact on your world
  • earn a certificate of completion and 1 unit of credit on an official UC Berkeley transcript

I am an active member of BPN, and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about this summer's program, or about embARC and higher education in environmental design in general.
