Each year College of Design students have the opportunity to travel through exchange and study abroad programs. There are currently three study-abroad opportunities for students this year:
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
College of Design instructor Kyle Miller will lead this summer program. Students will live and study in Amsterdam for nine weeks and travel to Rotterdam and Copenhagen. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with Dutch designers through a series of intensive design workshops. In addition, students will visit the offices of prominent European architectural design firms. More information about this program is available here.
The Barcelona study abroad program, lead by College of Design instructor Angie Co, will provide a general introduction to Spanish architecture and urbanism, and serve as a framework for exploration and analysis. Students will engage with vibrant and experimental local practitioners in the field (architects, educators, artists) through a series of events: workshops, discussions, tours, and presentations. The program will also include short trips to nearby cities.
The Dessau Summer Architecture School is part of an exchange program with Anhalt University. Students from around the world take part in an eight-week intensive studio experience that includes travel within the region. The program takes place in the historic Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius.
