Study Abroad/Global Education

Urban Context of Rome

Summer 2015

The Rome study abroad program represents the traditional travel/study benefits for an education in architecture. Lessons from the culture and the city frame a more specific understanding of historical buildings and styles.

Daily interaction, by means of exploring, sketching, measuring and observing, is intended to strengthen both, the intellectual and intuitive abilities, as design tools at the core of architectural academic program. Students will complete two elective classes. These classes will take advantage of Rome as a contemporary city where historical settings and modern times represent a whole. Particular focus will be on architectural intervention into that relationship, the relationship between the past and that which is emerging, and how it may manifest itself between architecture (a building) and the city (group form).

The Rome program offers something unique to students and is also a program expected to be available from a school of architecture. It offers content and travel experience, excitement, and intellectual challenges in addition to the obvious historical significance.
