Description: University of Washington Landscape Architecture Study Abroad Opportunities in Peru and Nepal!
IUCI / Design / Development / Peru / Nepal
The Informal Urban Communities Initiative (IUCI) Design / Development programs in Peru and Nepal are two unique, 28-day programs offered by the University of Washington's Department of Landscape Architecture. The programs challenge students to delve into contemporary debates surrounding development and respond to them through community-based participatory design. Students in the IUCI Design / Development programs in Peru and Nepal will explore the challenges of urban poverty and engage in small scale design interventions in under-served urban neighborhoods in Lima and Kathmandu. Students will learn critical skills in participatory design, implementation, and project assessment.
The programs will both run from August 21 until September 18, 2017
Applications are due March 1, 2017.
Students from any university and professionals are welcome to apply as non-matriculated students.
