On Saturday, September 26, 2015, The Architectural League of New York held its annual Student Program, a daylong event offering an inside glimpse into the architecture profession to current architecture students. The program highlights the varied and creative career paths open to graduates of architecture school.

It was a full day of programming for over 125 students representing more than ten architecture schools. A panel discussion in the morning, held at Trespa Design Centre, included speakers Nadine Maleh, Executive Director of the Institute for Public Architecture; AJ Pires, Executive Vice President of Alloy Development; and Sara Valente, Project Architect at LOT-EK and Co-founder of Stereotank.

Following the morning session, students had the opportunity to tour two studios from a list of some of the city’s most dynamic and interesting firms. Firms participating in studio tours included: Adjaye Associates, Andrew Berman Architect, Ennead Architects, KPF, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Rockwell Group, Studio Gang, TEN Arquitectos, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects | Partners, and WXY Architecture + Urban Design.

Snøhetta generously hosted an end-of-day reception at their new office in the Financial District. Participating students gathered to compare notes from the day, listen to a presentation on current projects, and participate in one final studio tour.

The Architectural League graciously thanks the following schools for their support of the Student Program and League programs: Barnard + Columbia Department of Architecture; Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, The City College of New York; Cornell University College of Architecture, Art & Planning; Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation; The Irwin S.
