CRITPraX, the Critical Practice Studio, is a summer design experience for upper division Master of Architecture students at Lawrence Technological University. Each summer, a master practitioner is invited to lead the 10 week, 4 workshop charrette style studio by introducing their ideology and methodology through a critical atmosphere and intense discourse. The studio stresses team interaction, communication and learning-by-doing. It uses the structure of the professional charrette while blending on-ground workshops with virtual engagement between sessions. Each team is led by a second, embedded master practitioner who works directly with a small group of students to engage the challenge presented by the guest visionary.
