Burlington-based CBS affiliate WCAX-TV recently profiled Norwich University’s Summer Design Academy, a week-long residential architecture and design program for high school students sponsored by NU’s School of Architecture + Art.

“The budding builders are creating things large and small, tackling topics like scale, proportion, light and design, in a mix of studio, seminar and field experiences,” WCAX’s Keith McGilvery reported.

Burlington-based designer and Norwich alum Josh Chafe co-directed the design program. He told WCAX that Norwich’s Summer Design Academy offered participants experience relevant beyond the field of architecture, including how to work in a group, create on fly, and reject ideas without guilt in order to start over.
