INTERN
DEVELOPMENT
PROGRAM

2023 IDP Interns

Integration of daily practice skills with fundamental design realization was the basis of the arkitek intern development program.

The internship program focus was developed around fundamental tasks that dealt with:

Architectural language comprehension and plan development skills including understanding of architectural views, elevations, and sections.
Sketching tasks and subjective qualities such as relationships between proportion, scale, composition, as well as light, shade, and shadow.
Project task management and time allowances in working through multiple stages of delivery.
Iterative design process and refinement throughout multiple schemes. 
Presentation and critique of design solution and composition.

Throughout the IDP process, design interns were given the tools and space to learn - exploring the relationship between analog and digital design processes; through the use of sketching, collaging, fabricating, and utilizing Adobe/Autodesk/Rhino software platforms.

The interns collaborated with the Arkitek team twice a week for four hours each session; weekly at both the Arkitek Ashland office on Tuesdays and at the Arkitek Hub@CraterWorks Makerspace. 

The interns were certified and provided access to Epilog laser cutters, 3D printers, and utilized shop assembly methods while honing digital presentation boards culminating in a design presentation critique(and party) with the arkitek design staff.
