Architecture & Design Programs
Summer in Architecture & Design
Five DIS Architecture and Design summer programs offer you an opportunity to explore the essential nature of world-renowned Danish architecture and design.
Each program comes as a comprehensive package offering 9 credits: a 6-credit, program-specific studio course (including study tour) and a 3-credit lecture course.
Apart from students enrolled in the Furniture Design in Scandinavia program, all students take the lecture course, Scandinavian Design and Architecture: History, Theory and Practice. This course provides an overview of Scandinavian architecture, graphic design, interior architecture, and urban planning; exploring these elements in a historical and current context from architectural, social, and political points of view.
Students in Architecture, Architecture Foundations, Graphic Design, Interior Architecture, and Urban Design go on faculty-led study tours together in Scandinavia. On tour, you will engage with outstanding examples of historical, modern, and contemporary Scandinavian architecture, interior architecture, urban signage, restoration projects, recreational and cultural areas, and urban planning. You will explore the regional emphasis on simplicity, the social and political context of design, and user involvement.
Sweden and Finland is the study tour destination for Furniture Design in Scandinavia. You will visit furniture manufacturing companies to understand the design and business processes in the industry and will experience leading examples of Scandinavian furniture design, interior design, and architecture.
