Tokyo, Japan Study-Abroad
The Tokyo study-abroad program introduces students to the architectural and cultural vibrancy of the contemporary Japanese city. The three-month program consists of a design studio and a seminar led by SCI-Arc faculty, and specialized travel seminars and workshops taught by Japanese faculty from leading institutions such as the University of Tokyo, Kyoto Seika University, Keio University, and Hosei University.
In addition to formal coursework, the program includes field trips to areas of specific interest in Tokyo and its surroundings. Students also attend lectures, openings, and exhibitions related to topics highlighted in the program curriculum.
Program partners include San Francisco-based Bechtel Corporation, who offered students access to and training on using environmental disaster simulation software, and ARUP Japan, who provided hands-on engineering and technical support to students completing their final projects.
