Crossing over with the first week of the fall term, Graduate Thesis at SCI-Arc is the nexus of school events, cultivating an inevitable link between outgoing thesis ideas with incoming students’ curiosities. The weekend of reviews gives thesis students an invaluable platform to articulate, propose, and defend their work to the SCI-Arc community and beyond. 62 students and 17 faculty advisors will converge with an array of invited guest critics from within, and outside the discipline of architecture, to review, debate, and contemplate the provocations of this year’s thesis projects.

“Thesis is not only a demonstration of a student’s scholarship, skills, and ideas, but an ongoing endeavor of their professional and creative future. This year’s thesis projects take positions on compelling provocations of 2022. While each thesis is a personal and specific investigation, collectively, this year’s class gives us a pulse on the ideas and attitudes that will shape our built environments.”

Jackilin Hah Bloom, Graduate Thesis Coordinator
