Archiculture captures the turbulent final semester for five unique architecture students as they struggle and succeed in this rigorous training. The documentary focuses primarily on the diverse, dynamic student characters, as well as their interactions with friends and faculty, and their intimate relationships to the projects they ultimately create. Subplot topics will be woven into the high-pressure storyline through the issues that arise during their design process to shed light on the current topics impacting our built environment. The audience gets an in-depth look into the unknown and misunderstood process of becoming an Architect and the creative yet competitive process students go through while immersing themselves into the passionate pursuit of design excellence.
