Hey Archy! I'm visiting Moscow and I found this summer program funded by the MARCH (?) architecture school. Do you think these kinds of programs are better at establishing a foundation for learning, rather than if I were to study by myself?
I don’t think its better or worse. If you are the kind of person that enjoys this experience, go for it! I attended a summer program or engineering in Purdue University and it was a great experience, but the parts I remember are not the courses but the friendships and mischief.
