Design Discovery

Design Discovery is a two-week summer program that introduces high-school students, college students, graduates, and second-career professionals to a potential career in design.

If you are considering a career in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, or an allied design discipline, you can get a taste of it here at SALA. Throughout the program, you’ll immerse yourself in the studio culture and experience what education and work are like in the design professions. You will build skills, develop projects for a portfolio, and – most importantly – learn if a career in design is right for you.

"I was very impressed with the overall execution of the program. The hands on experience and tours really helped me get a better idea of whether or not a career in architecture was for me.”
