Spring break practice previews

ukcod Mar 18 '13 0

Architecture and Interior Design students had the opportunity to intern at regional, national, and international design firms over spring break. The Practice Previews program places students in these firms for 1-2 weeks to garner professional experience and to contribute to the firms' projects.
The experience of the students varied for each firm, as they could be involved with executing a research assignment, sit in on staff or client meetings, go on site visits, or assist with drawings, designs, or model building.

"The spring break Practice Previews program is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me," said graduate student Sarah Mohr. "I never imagined this would be a possibility for me before coming to graduate school at UK." Sarah worked with designers in New York's Reiser + Umemto on a hub/hotel in Manhattan.
