The Texas A&M University Department of Landscape Architecture & Urban Planning's and Penn State Department of Landscape Architecture, LARCH's students participated in a workshop on ‚Photography, Space, and Place‘ – exploring underutilized urban areas along the railway tracks between the center of Bonn and the northern city limits by bike and documenting particular characteristics of selected spaces in this area through photography.
At the end, the students presented their hard work in the AIB studio space to each other! It will serve as the foundation for their semester-long design project of spaces along the railway corridor.
It was amazing to see what they were able to capture and come up with in such a short amount of time!
And a big thanks to Erica Quinn for hosting the workshop.
We were saddened and heartbroken to hear of the devastation and destruction Harvey has caused in Texas and especially in the Houston area. Many of our current and former students coming to us from Texas A&M University are from this area and felt the destruction the hurricane brought first hand.
In order to help out, AIB decided to collect donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey at our Welcome Event last week. And we are happy to announce that a whopping 240$ were donated.
We have transferred the donation to the Houston Food Bank where it will help to feed those who have been replaced and lost everything, or have otherwise been affected by the recent storm.
Our hearts go out to all the victims and we wish them and the Houston area strength for the upcoming months of rebuilding and finding their way back to normalcy.
Thinking about studying abroad, but not sure yet?
Below you can find some useful tips and insights about studying abroad and how to get the most out of it from on of our former students, Jessica Bradford.
Jessica did a semester abroad with AIB Germany in Bonn, studying in the Loyola Marymount University's Business, Arts and Communication program in Spring 2017.
She says: "I was in Germany for 112 days and England for 13 and as my semester ended and I continued into my summer and back to life in California, I think of all the things I am so happy I did as well as the things I wish I had of done. I’ve learned a lot this past semester and I wanted to reflect on that and give some of my own little insights and advice for anyone going abroad or just anyone in general."
