In order to bridge the radical gap between education and practice, the undergraduate program at the University of Colorado Denver has experimented with study abroad programs in the undergraduate curriculum to match architectural practice with education. The strategy has been to develop a curriculum in international design-build that can employ traditional studio skills of research, design and cultural criticism. This paper explores the options and the outcomes of the strategic inclusion of international study and practice in the form of an undergraduate design/build course sequence.
