I absolutely loved intro to architectural design with Ben! I took this class as a freshman to fulfill my art credit, but ended up falling in love with architecture and becoming a minor. Ben is such a cool professor and genuine person. You will love this class if you are willing to put in the time commitment and creativity. It is so worth it, but will take quite a bit of time.

I took this class with Shelly Pottorf for j term, and it was one of the highlights of my Middlebury experience. The course is centered around modeling projects and some drafting, though there is also a significant reading component to it too. Overall I think the readings definitely contributed value to the course, and I really enjoyed our group discussions - Prof. Pottorf has very strong feelings about architecture, as do all of the professors in the department, and it definitely shows. The projects were very conceptual - the emphasis was on creating architectural experiences (don't expect to be designing buildings or using any digital technology.)

Ben is a really nice teacher who does so much for his students, and it is so easy to end this class with an 100. He lets you redo assignments, and if you are efficient in class there is no homework in the course.
