3North Summer Multi-Disciplinary Design Internship

Posted on

3North just wrapped up it’s 2018 Summer Design Internship in our Richmond, Virginia studio! Our program is developed for students of advanced standing who possess the design talent, work ethic, and creative passion that we value at 3north. We were pleased to welcome Megumi Kamiya (4th year Landscape Architecture) from Virginia Tech, Meghan Jones (3rd Year Architecture) from University of Virginia, and Caroline Ogburn (3rd Year Interior Design) from Virginia Commonwealth University for our 2018 summer session.

Our program provided practical experience in a professional, multi-disciplinary design environment that enabled our three participating students to explore many areas of interest in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, graphic design and interior design. Beyond daily work experience, the students were exposed to diverse subjects within the business of design, participated in site visits outside of our office to ongoing and recently completed construction projects and toured local manufacturing facilities.

“3North didn’t just teach me a computer program or how to navigate plans, 3north taught me how to understand a project and see how the details at any point, when worked out perfectly, correlate to create beautiful architecture.”

– Meghan Jones, 3rd year Architecture, University of Virginia

“Thank you for allowing me to experience first hand what a top-notch architecture and design firm really looks like. Working alongside people with talent, dedication & drive helped me see why we do what we do in the first place.”

– Megumi Kamiya, 4th year Landscape Architecture, Virginia Tech

“Working at 3North as a summer intern was a rewarding and invaluable experience. Being able to work alongside other disciplines of design and to put into practice all of the things I’ve learned in school were some of the highlights.”

– Caroline Ogburn, 3rd year Interior Design, Virginia Commonwealth University
