The first phase of your Nomadic Studio experience begins at the end of your first year, when you will travel to Rome.* You’ll learn from architectural scholars and specialists as they explain the geometry and intentions behind the design of the 2,500-year-old city. You’ll draw and analyze the spaces you see as you walk the streets of Rome.
The streets are your classroom. Observation and analysis, through drawing, will be your teacher. This summer in Rome will prepare you for the second phase of your Nomadic Studio experience, in which you’ll travel abroad to experience and study design around the globe.
*Due to IU’s effort to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) we are canceling the Summer 2020 portion of the Nomadic Studio traveling to Rome. Students who intended to partake in Summer 2020 programming will attend in Summer 2021.
