The Foundation for Architecture and Landscape Architecture (FALA) was a summer program for architecture training for graduates. Students lived at Lake Forest College during the program, which existed from 1926-1931. The students learned from master architects, examined local estates, and collaborated on drawings. These drawings were housed at Lake Forest College in storage in 1935 and found 50 years later.
