KaTO is a design/build studio in Richmond, VA, which engages students of architecture & design, engineering, and building construction to design social projects in developing countries. During 2017, the summer studio will design a school in the Dominican Republic, and the fall studio will design a school in Peru. Both teams will travel to respective countries during the studios to visit the communities and immerse in the local cultures.
The program may be elected for credit as an externship/study abroad with university approval. The studio and electives offered may provide up to full-semester credit.
The summer studio will take place from May 29th – July 28th and the fall studio will be from August 21st – December 8th. Travel dates TBD.
