Development

 

There are great opportunities for internship studios and developing practice experience in the Washington D.C. area with firms and real estate developers providing available relationships with design/build architecture. Recent examples of this include 4 graduate students invited to participate as team members at a nationally prominent architecture firm to design a Net Zero house, a student group hired by a real estate developer to re-imagine and design a dilapidated hotel property. Both projects are preparing for construction. Integration with the practice of architecture is a key component of the real estate development concentration. Through studio and class lecture opportunities, students regularly meet with practitioners and often join firms prior to graduation due to the flexibility of the concentration curriculum..
