Applicants must present samples of their best architectural design studio work from the Design 1-4 courses. UCF utilizes the platform Conceptboard to provide each student with an individual virtual space to produce their exhibit, that will be provided at the time of Pin-Up to each qualifying student.

A team of faculty and industry professionals will rate each exhibit. While rating exhibits on the basis of overall quality rather than individual categories, they will look for examples of the following:

Design process: Development of ideas, as well as two- and three-dimensional diagramming skills.

Design resolution: Organizational skills in both two- and three-dimensions relating to spatial enclosure and circulation systems.

Communication skills: Drawing quality (free-hand and hardline); three-dimensional drawings (axonometric, one-point and two-point perspectives); use of hierarchy in organizing information; and model-building skills.
