A dynamic studio environment is at the core of Wentworth's architectural education. Students work intensively in small groups under the guidance of a faculty member. They invent and test ideas, discover new ways of thinking, and explore conceptual methods and emerging technologies. The studio also creates an engaging climate where friendships are formed and lifelong professional relationships are fostered. Outside the studio, Wentworth students participate in a wide range of activities, including professional organizations such as the Wentworth Architecture Club (WAC), the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), and the student-run journal, Wentworth Architecture Review (WAr). They also benefit from Institute-wide activities, events in the Colleges of the Fenway, and experiences living in a vibrant neighborhood of Boston.
