Intern Match with a registered architect to provide mentorship and professional development support

Project Team match to learn our collaborative process for a specific client and provide exposure to skills in every AXP category

Participation in an IKM Innovation Lab, or special interest group, with which you will help assist to accomplish the group’s unique goals for the firm.

PechaKucha presentation: With the assistance of full-time staff, we conclude the summer with this creative exercise to strengthen intern’s public speaking skills by using the 20×20 rule on a topic unique to their personal interests.

Design Board Requirements:

  • Size: One 18×24 inch board
  • Think big (or small): Show us your most innovative/impactful/creative/useful design! This should not be a school project.
