3North Unified Design Summer Internship 2019

Posted on

3North just wrapped up it’s 2019 Unified Design Summer 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 Joon Kang (2nd year Architecture) from Virginia Tech, Bonnee Grennon (3rd year Interior Design) from Virginia Tech, and Lindsey Rullman (4th year Landscape Architecture) from Penn State for our 2019 summer session.

Our program provided practical experience in a professional, Unified 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 has provided me with a unique opportunity to learn and experience the different roles in an interdisciplinary design firm. Working with a team full of motivated people helped me grow as an architect and I can’t wait to apply what I learned to school.”

– Joon Kang, 2nd year Architecture, Virginia Tech

“My time at 3North has definitely been an enlightening experience surrounded by many talented and dedicated professionals. The hands-on design experience and out of office site visits/meetings truly helped me learn more than I have at school. The interdisciplinary environment taught me to appreciate design ideas from all kinds of different perspectives and I will continue to value that throughout my academic and professional career.”

– Lindsey Rullman, 4th year Landscape Architecture, Penn State

“The skills and knowledge I learned from 3north will impact my design for the rest of my life and I am so grateful for it! The connections I have made through lunches, site visits, family and ‘denim day’ are such blessings and I’m so thankful that I was able to call Richmond my home this summer and work with the designers at 3North!”
