1 May / Midnight / Compendia

All students are to submit a Compendium of their semester’s work by midnight on Sunday 1 May:

  • Link to the Student Work folder on Google docs here.
  • Submit work in the appropriate section subfolder.
  • Submit a single PDF containing quality documentation of all work: final drawings, final models, Montessori material documentation, and relevant process investigations.
  • The PDF may be as many pages as needed, but be very careful that the file size does not exceed 20Mb.
  • Please be careful to use the following file-naming convention:

Compendia will be referenced for grading and selection of work for Open House.  So it should communicate your work in a clear, self-evident, and legible way.


27 Apr / Final Review Locations

Students are to be present and prepared with all work in Crown Hall no later than 1:00pm.

Students are highly encouraged to temporarily stage work in Crown prior to the 1:00pm deadline.  Please be considerate and careful to avoid disruption of other review sessions in progress.
