The UIC College of Architecture and the Arts has formed a partnership with Lane Technical High School and Marwen to present "Think Like an Architect: Partnership for Architectural Education," a hands-on exposure to the widening professional role of architects.

"The program supports high school curriculum while extending it into the real-world environment," said Sharon Haar, assistant professor of architecture. "Think Like an Architect introduces students to the architectural community and workplace through practical fieldwork. Drawing, modeling, photography, public speaking and writing are used to help students envision space and movement on a variety of scales."

The joint program is funded by the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
