On display: Exhibit features work by APDesign students from their internships

MANHATTAN -- The work of College of Architecture, Planning & Design students at Kansas State University who participated in internships during the 2012-2013 school year is now on display in the Chang Gallery in Seaton Hall's east wing.

The exhibit, which runs through Oct. 25, is free and open to the public. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays 

All curriculum areas of the college, also known as APDesign, are represented in the exhibit: architecture, interior architecture & product design, landscape architecture, and regional & community planning.

Architecture students intern from January – August and IAPD and LA|RCP students typically are during the spring and summer semesters. All internships are with professional firms and governmental agencies around the world. Internships are encouraged in the college as a way of getting students to experience new places and let them use what they have learned academically in a professional setting, according to Wendy Ornelas, associate dean of the college and director of the department of architecture’s academic internship program.

"This exhibit exposes students in the college and across campus, as well as the general public, to the varied types of works done by firms in the design professions," Ornelas said. "It can help students see how and where they can explore and experience learning in a professional setting and enhance their understanding of the design professions."
