Asheville Summer DesignBuild Studio: Now Accepting Student Applications

The ten week, hands-on, multi-disciplinary, educational program will take place amid the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful Asheville, NC. The DesignBuild Studio will run from June 1 to August7. Student applications are due by April 15.
This summer students will work with the local community to explore how design can address issues of community sustainability. Students will define, generate, and explore conceptual solutions while integrating technical, financial, legal, and social constraints to complete a built project.

The 2015 ​DesignBuild Studio will explore the process of developing conceptual solutions and translating them into a built space. The program will be led by instructors Luke W. Perry and Miriam Gee, both returning from last year's studio.

Interested students can visit our DesignBuild Studio webpage to submit an online application (PDFs of applications are also available to download). In addition, students can inquire with Chris Joyell ( to receive additional information re: project description, tuition, scholarships, housing, application and selection process.
