Green Design Architect
Interns with a specific interest in sustainability, an internship with a green design architectural firm will expose you to the latest developments in sustainable design and green building methods. To minimize the impact on the surrounding environment, green design architects must use innovative materials and methods to achieve both functionality and visual appeal.
While architecture is commonly associated with planning and designing buildings, landscape architecture focuses on the outdoors. An internship with a landscape architectural firm will allow you to design gardens, resorts, public parks, golf courses, and other outdoor recreational spaces. Landscape architects must also possess specialized knowledge in horticulture, to create cohesive and appealing spaces.
Town and City Planning
Also known as urban design, architects involved in town and city planning focus on an entire urban area, as opposed to individual structures. An intern in a town and city planning firm may be required to research the needs and behaviors of the people who are intended to occupy that space, ensuring that the designs are purposefully built with those requirements in mind.
