Summer Program in Costa Rica with KaTO

KaTO is a design/build studio in Richmond, VA, which engages students of architecture &c4d28df517e72c32-PlayaGigante_Exterior.jpg design, engineering, and building construction to design and construct schools in developing countries. During the summer of 2016, the team will work in Richmond to design a school in Costa Rica, and travel to Costa Rica to visit the community.

The program is a hybrid between a design/build studio, a professional practice work setting, and a study abroad. Students will work as a multi-disciplinary team to create a new design for an underprivileged community, while learning the process of bringing a built project to fruition.
