CIEE Collaborates with U.S. Faculty to Sponsor International Workshop for Architecture and Design

New York University, Terreform ONE, La Biennale di Venezia, and CIEE partner to host 14th International
Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.
Portland, Maine (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

CIEE is excited to sponsor the Venice Biennale Workshop, a special collaboration with U.S. faculty that
allows 10 U.S. students to work alongside experts in design and architecture and take part in the field’s
leading international forum.
New York University (NYU), Terreform ONE, La Biennale di Venezia, and CIEE have teamed up to host this
innovative workshop for students from NYU and Rhode Island School of Design, May 27-June 7.
Students begin their adventure in New York at the offices of Terreform ONE, where they’ll learn cutting-
edge methods for forecasting population growth of the world’s densest cities, using a model called the Bio
City Map.
After a week in New York, the group travels to Venice, Italy, for the 14th International Architecture Exhibition
of the Venice Biennale, an international exhibition that showcases art, film, and architecture, held every two
years. In Venice, students will continue to focus on the latest advances in design and architecture for urban
projects and help install Terreform ONE’s exhibit – the official selection at this prestigious event.

CIEE’s Global Architecture and Design programs bring students and leading experts together to explore
how innovation and technology can help cities become self-sufficient. These programs are offered in New
York; Barcelona, Spain; Berlin, Germany; and Prague, Czech Republic.
