KSA Students Open Exhibit in Rome

Knowlton School of Architecture students taking part in the KSA’s Spring 2012 Italy Study Abroad Program in Rome opened an exhibit entitled per/corsi di roma, Sunday, May 28 at the gallery Frane Letterarie.  The Italy program is wrapping up its quarter abroad, and will hold its final studio review in Zaha Hadid's MAXXI Gallery.

The Italy Program allows students to complete studio requirements and elective courses while living and working in Italy during the spring term. The Program is coordinated by Professor Kay Bea Jones, and participation is open to third-year undergraduate students in the architecture program.  It is structured to provide an immersive experience in Italian architectural culture, and students study the Italian language throughout the program. Design and analysis problems build upon the student's design skills, while integrating theoretical foundations for critical inquiry, historical analysis, in-situ field studies, sketch journal documentation, designing, and defending their proposals to Italian and American architects.
