Program & Location

Vicenza, Italy

During the month of June, students will be introduced to Italian culture through the study of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning. Both the formal ideals as well as the constructed reality of these three subjects will be studied through critical observation and documentation of universal conditions and critical junctures. Exploratory field trips by rail and bus of the Venetan region will extend from Verona in the west to Treviso in the east and the Venetian lagoon north into the pre-Alps.

Length of Program: Summer, five weeks

Eligibility: Graduate & Undergraduate Students

Number of Credits: 6

The Venice Semester Abroad Program is an exciting new fall option for fourth year students in the Architecture Department, or for third or fourth year students in Architectural History and Planning, subject to advisor approval.
