The Conway School
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Conway

The Conway program is a lively mix of classroom instruction, applied studio work, student and visitor presentations, field work, site visits, and informal discussions in the collective kitchen. Sketching in the field Students learn from faculty, from each other, from guests, and from their explorations of their project sites and the communities where those projects are embedded. The environment is personal, collaborative, and rigorous—learning is driven by motivated students working for real communities to solve real and pressing problems. The Conway program is built around those real projects for real clients. The projects raise issues, questions, and challenges—from technical questions about site engineering, to ethical issues about community involvement or wise use of resources, to practical questions about how resilience can be built into systems in the face of uncertain futures—that drive the classes, discussions, and field and studio work that make up the rest of the fully integrated, multidisciplinary program. Class assignments—graphic, technical, and written—support project work. A Typical Week at Conway We’re small. That means we can change the schedule on a moment’s notice–load up the van and go on a field trip to see what happens when a dam collapses; visit a project site during a community street festival; add a class to introduce new software that suddenly became available. We do, though, have a regular weekly schedule. Projects Each Conway student works on three projects, one per term. In the fall, students have their own site design project, typically a couple of acres or less—one student... [-]
