Thank you to all who submitted an application.

Application Process

Stage One:

Complete the Application Form for participants, with optional teaching proposal. All participants have an opportunity to attend as well as teach. Although submitting a teaching proposal is encouraged, it will have no bearing on your admission to the Free School of Architecture.

Stage Two:

Complete the Peer Review. All applicant statements will be blind reviewed by other applicants. You will receive 3 peer applications for review the last week of January 2018.

Only completion of both stages of the application process will qualify an application to the Free School of Architecture, Summer 2018.

All participants will be contacted mid February 2018 to confirm their attendance. Accepted teaching proposals will also be informed at this time.


No fee will be associated with or accepted for application to the Free School of Architecture. Applicants' design portfolios, CVs, websites or letters of recommendation will not be accepted and submission of any of these items will disqualify any application.
