Each year, SCI-Arc students are offered the opportunity to participate in one-semester traveling studios with other institutes and universities around the world. Among the traveling studios offered at SCI-Arc this year:
While in Japan, students take a full semester's worth of courses, including a SCI-Arc studio with a site in Tokyo and a project that directly engages many of the contemporary urban issues present in the great city. Students also interact with Japanese architecture students and attend lectures by Japanese faculty, as well as participate in visits to important historic and contemporary works of art and architecture throughout Japan. After a final review in Tokyo, students present their work to faculty and peers during the final week of studio reviews in Los Angeles.
