We are excited to announce the launch of our 2015 Summer Internship Program. To view previous internship reports please visit our website under Research.
At Berger Partnership we recognize the importance of connecting with students to enhance their academic studies and prepare them for professional practice. Each year we identify a topic based on a pressing concern in landscape architecture. This year we are focusing on Urban Archeology: cataloguing the layers of geology, ecology, and culture that have shaped the land and city and how design lessons can be derived from this knowledge at every scale. This will involve research, cartography, modelling and the production of 2D and 3D graphics as well as physical models.
The internship combines the above mentioned research and a practicum. The practicum is designed to provide hands-on project experience in a collaborative team environment and will likely involve researching applicable projects and visiting local examples, preparation of graphics, 3D modeling and design of a range of landscape elements.
The paid internship is open to all Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design students and will run six to eight weeks, approximately 30-40 hours a week. Please note the program is intended for students enrolled in a degree program who will be returning to school for the following term; applicants who graduate prior to the dates of the internship will not be considered. Interns are expected to present their findings and a deliverable to the office at the conclusion of the internship.
Applicants should demonstrate excellence in graphic design, 3D modelling, rendering, and digital fabrication.
To be considered for Berger Partnership’s 2015 Summer Internship, please submit a letter of interest, resume, and representative work samples as a PDF to our office by email by March 29, 2015. Please limit your submittal to a maximum of 10 pages.
