High-standing workshops

 

The design of an exhibition in collaboration with Fondazione Prada (Architecture for Exhibition), the recovery of an abandoned abbey in the Irish countryside (Architecture for Heritage), the design of a pop-up store for 10 Corso Como (Architecture for Fashion), or the design of a paediatric hospital in Senegal (Architecture for Humanity): YACademy offers several workshops for subject courses in collaboration with high-standing partners. As part of such workshops, students are able to develop hands-on projects related to the topics of the chosen course, under the tutorship of internationally-renowned architectural firms such as David Chipperfield Architects, Bjarke Ingels Group, and SANAA.

360º training experience: visits, inspections, and one-day workshops

 

YACademy’s training offers a wide range, 360º experiences. As part of the courses, students have the opportunity to visit new architectural sites and firms that are relevant to their topics. Similarly, both in class and outside the classroom, teachers will carry out exercises and inspections to best convey the contents of their modules: ‘Architecture for Heritage’ students have the chance to fly drones for the survey of historical architecture, ‘Architecture for Fashion’ pupils will be able to visit private brand locations that are inaccessible to the public, for example some of Milan’s most prestigious fashion sites.

At the end of the classes, YACademy students are offered a networking and job orientation service, which, to this date, has allowed alumni to carry out internships or collaborations with studios such as Herzog & De Meuron, SANAA, David Chipperfield Architects, and many other renowned names. The school’s foundation as a close creative community where students, lecturers and teaches can freely discourse, enables pupils to network for future opportunities. Every year hundreds of young designers take advantage of this to further their careers.
