As part of GSAPP’s global mission, Summer Workshops foster open dialogue and cultural exchange and encourage collaborative research addressing urgent topics of our time. Every year faculty-led research workshops assemble students from across the School’s programs for an intensive study opportunity that revolves around a particular question in a global location. Summer Workshops present students a unique chance for cross-disciplinary collaboration, firsthand experience, and global engagement with real situations. As a sign of the Summer Workshops’ success, many students carry their research into studio and future projects, as well as research opportunities with faculty.
Due to COVID-19, travel was suspended in Summer 2020 to ensure the safety and well-being of the Columbia GSAPP community. More information on our response to coronavirus may be found here.
