Program Description

Study abroad has a long and important history in the training of architects. Immersion in foreign culture and architectural traditions transforms the way our students understand precedents and contemporary influences underlying Western design. Today, with architects practicing all around the world, it is crucial for students to explore architecture in a new physical and cultural setting.

For summer 2013, we have a new slate of programs:

Berlin Program with Professor John DeSalvo
The two course, four week, 6-credit elective curriculum will be based in Berlin, Germany, a city rich in architecture developmental history and innovation and modern international design. Travel around Germany and Denmark is included. Highlights are the modern architecture of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) in Copenhagen, and tours in Germany including the work of Helmut Jahn, Coop Himmelblau, Herzog de Meuron, and Frei Otto.

International Design Workshop in Santiago, Chile with Professor Susan Conger-Austin
August 8 - 16
Approximate cost: $2000, depending on airfare
The main objective of the workshop is to create an experience of international teamwork and development based around a particular architectonic theme. Students do not receive academic credit for this workshop – however, the experience is great as students from foreign universities work together on teams in a studio setting to develop and generate proposals. In the past 3 workshops, the students worked on a master plan to provide housing and civic amenities to one of the coastal towns devastated by the earthquake and tsunami of 2010, analyzing and developing strategies on how to integrate the Mapocho River, and transforming a former industrial space into new public amenity for the city of Valparaiso, Chile.
