Applications available for Spring Break Practice Previews
January 10, 2013 | School
This coming March, the School of Architecture will continue its Spring Break Practice Previews program which sends students to regional, national, and international architectural offices in order to more directly expose them to the professional practice of architecture.
Students will be responsible for preparing a short application for this program to indicate city preference. The School will arrange placement in offices from March 11th - March 15th/22nd (one or two week placement). Students will be responsible for travel to and from their assigned cities, as well as their daily living expenses. There will be no formal agreement with the office to provide students with any monetary compensation, and participants are not eligible to receive academic or professional credit. UK/CoD cannot guarantee placement for all applicants.
Each experience is certain to be different, but students may participate in/experience any of the following;
Execute a short research assignment
Sit in on staff or client meetings
Go to construction site visits
Assist in concept design
Help with working drawings
Build a model
Meet with a partner to discuss the firms work
Shadow an architect
This application is due on January 16th, 2013. Submit applications to Kimberly Light in the main office before 5:00pm on this date.
This year the following offices (and more) will participate: OMA (New York), Urban Lab (Chicago), Studio Gang (Chicago), SO-IL (New York), Morphosis (Los Angeles and New York), Bureau Spectacular (Chicago), Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York), Scarpa+Brooks (Los Angeles), Iwamoto Scott (San Francisco), Barkow Leibinger (Berlin) and Neil M.
