                Denmark Travel Study Program

 

To provide funding for The University of Washington-College of Built Environments to work with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and with Gehl Architects to develop a Copenhagen, Denmark based, multi-disciplinary, two-week, travel study program.  The study group will include thirty(30) University of Washington students, six(6) Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Danish students, and two(2) University of Washington professors.

Students will gain first-hand knowledge of the methods of Gehl Architects, and especially an opportunity to experience and study the vital spaces that the firm has advanced in Copenhagen so that they can apply this knowledge to their design work in the studio and in their future careers.  One week will focus on Gehl's work and influence, while the second week will encompass other examples of sustainable design in Denmark and the Oresund region.

The travel study program is a preparatory experience to the Fall quarter Scan|Design Foundation
