APPLYING TO ARCHITECTURE SCHOOLS
PRESENTED BY ARCHITECTURE IS FREE FOUNDATION
In an effort to attract an even more diverse group of applicants to the most elite schools of architecture, The Architecture Is Free Foundation, in partnership with Ace Mentor Programs of America, asked some of the top schools of Architecture in the United States to prepare short videos directed to our students. The objective of the video is to give tips and advice on how to prepare a successful application, including portfolio and essay writing advice. We hope that in this way we can continue to break down barriers to educational inclusion. The Architecture Is Free Foundation continues to provide mentoring support and assistance to students that need help preparing portfolios and editing essays. It is our hope that If the world we live in is to truly be a valid expression of our collective cultural moment, then it has to be designed by a representative cross-section of people that live in the world, not just the unencumbered elite few.
