Nka Foundation, NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS from Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Interior Design Students for internships in Ghana between 2014 and 2016. Contact: info@nkafoundation.org / www.nkafoundation.org for application form.

PROJECT SITE: Abetenim, a village located 40 km Southeast of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Open to all students and graduates of architecture, landscape architecture, design, engineering, Environmental Studies, International Studies and school teams
DATES: Year-round and lengths-of-stay from 1-6 months

The architecture internship is a hands-on, fulls-on site-specific experience in a location outside of the Western culture. Work side-by-side with local artisans to generate an alternative using sustainable materials from the environment while furthering your knowledge of the intersections between art, architecture and community. Experience how a design problem, budget and site-specific dynamics such as materials, indigenous technologies and community can provoke resourceful thinking and hybridization. In the process, the student will learn to design what is buildable to make a well rounded graduate.
