Intern Fellowship

VIA’s Intern program provides an exciting opportunity to play a meaningful role in providing technical development, sustainable strategies, and contributions to the design and production of architectural projects under the direct supervision of the project manager or principal in charge. This is an in-person position where the interns spend most of their time one to one with a principal shadowing and having the opportunity to hear different conversations. They will work collaboratively with various project teams of architects, interior designers, and engineers and will be encouraged to be an active part of our team. VIA has focused committees that our staff participates in. We will encourage the interns to participate depending on their interests and talents.  

The Intern Fellowship allows a team of interns with different backgrounds to collaborate on a project together throughout the summer and learn from each other. The Fellowship objective is for each intern to leave with a wealth of gained knowledge and a completed piece to carry forward into their portfolio. We offer our interns the autonomy to perform research and form their own design concept for a real project within the firm. Our principals invest in giving our interns a valuable experience in different parts of the industry such as: pre-design field work, construction administration, client meetings, construction site visits, and design exercises in the office. Our goal is to inspire new designers and provide a meaningful experience that equips each intern with valuable lessons that will help launch their careers after graduation. We are excited to welcome fresh ideas and new approaches to our firm!  

The right candidate will demonstrate a passion for architecture and design, and will possess the following:   

·    Pursuit of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in architecture, landscape architecture, interior design/architecture, graphic design, or a related field
