Kayla Manio, a graduating student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture program at Woodbury University, was accepted into the Carnegie Mellon UDream summer program.
Kayla is the first Interior Architecture student and the first student from the West coast to be selected into this program.
UDream provides recent graduates of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and urban planning programs the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of urban design in a summer and fall immersion experience.
UDream begins on the Carnegie Mellon University campus with a 5 week program of academic courses and studio work with an emphasis on urban sustainability. The courses and studio are taught by architecture faculty and local urban design practitioners. The academic program is followed by a 12 week internship with an urban design or architecture firm, public agency, or non-profit group engaged in planning and community development.
