Field Trips

The APDesign mission includes exposing students to as many places and opportunities as possible to enrich learning. From the beginning of their time at APDesign, students travel to places with exemplary design, often in conjunction with current projects. Students visit award-winning places, professional environments such as design firms, showrooms, manufacturers, and state-of-the-art green infrastructures. Our students and faculty have most recently visited the following places:

Boston, MA Chicago, IL Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
Denver, CO Grand Rapids, MI Los Angeles, CA
