Program Reviews:
Kevin Andrew Purdom, Winter Break 2016 Participant
The most rewarding element of the trip for me was interacting with the architects that we met on our firm visits and realizing that I could possibly work outside of the United States with some great opportunities that were present in the UAE.

Kevin Andrew Purdom, Winter Break 2016 Participant
Learning a new culture and seeing architecture from a completely new world view really allows a student to be more creative and thoughtful in their design.

Joseph D Schaefer-Glick, Winter Break 2016 Participant
In the future the UAE will be crawling with architectural masterpieces. This is the time to go and learn about them and study the architecture and building techniques behind each new city that emerges.
