Architecture in Vicenza
Gain a valuable perspective on Italy’s contribution to architectural, urban, and landscape design through the ages. The program begins in Rome with a two-week study tour that includes Siena, Florence and Bologna before taking up residence for eight weeks in Vicenza, where the focus will be on the design studio. Traveling and then living in an Italian town will give you a rich cultural experience, enhanced by coursework that will contribute to your academic progress toward your degree.
Classes for the first two weeks will be fieldwork intensive and focus on the subject area courses. Classes at the Vicenza site will focus on studio and integrate the content of subject area courses with the studio project. Excursions are an integral and required component of the academic experience of the Vicenza program.
