When looking for international architecture internships, you may be unsure of which country will offer the most opportunities. Without a doubt, some of the most famous architecture can be found in the beautiful cities of Europe. London and Madrid are two completely different cities, each with their own distinct and breathtaking style.
An architecture internship in London is unparalleled to any other work experience you may have and here’s why. Home to world-renowned architectural buildings, London is one of the most important cities for famous architecture with its historical and contemporary mix. From the Houses of Parliament to St Paul’s Cathedral, the stunning gothic architecture is Grade I listed, and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take inspiration from The Albert Hall, Hampton Court Palace and even the Millennium Dome! When walking down the street in this vibrant city, you will experience a new style with a different story behind it at every turn. Throughout the years, London’s ever evolving style has taken inspiration not only from history, but also from other countries; from French cathedrals to Italian style streets, London will quench your thirst for European culture.
An architecture internship in Madrid will show you the true beauty of Europe. Not many countries have such a dynamic history as Spain. Its history is apparent just by looking at the different architectural styles that dictate each time-period. From Arab influences to Austrian and French, Madrid is a city full of famous buildings. Take a walk through Plaza Mayor to experience the true ‘Castillian Baroque’. The grey slate spires and the red brick walls are typical of this era. Discover the work of Italian architects Filippo Juvarra and Giambattista Sacchetti at the Royal Palace, one of the most decisive moments in Spain’s architectural history.
