The Undergraduate International Studio provides undergraduate architecture majors with a faculty-led semester abroad, eleven weeks in an exciting design-oriented city, where, to a large degree, the city is the classroom. The Junior/Senior-level vertical design studio is supported by three elective courses, each focused on a different scale: the City, the Building, and the Hand. This spring, the program is based in Barcelona.
This program is designed for Georgia Tech undergraduate architecture majors in the third and fourth years of their studio sequence. Undergraduate students from other architecture schools who meet Georgia Tech criteria for transient students are also welcome. The program is capped at 14 students.
