Institute without Boundaries


Each year, the Institute selects 8-12 candidates from an international pool of applicants who work together to research, design and realize a significant global project. We select passionate people interested in joining a creative team to solve problems for real clients while learning design thinking techniques. Students conceptualize leading-edge ideas and undertake work to bring these concepts to life.

IwB class of 2013

Candidates are drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds and educational disciplines. Given the nature of the City Systems Project, we are particularly interested in architects, landscape architects, engineers (civil, structural, mechanical), interior and industrial designers, new media experts, communication specialists, sociologists, cultural anthropologists, political scientists, geographers, social historians, scientists, psychologists, and environmental designers.
