Program Description
Service: The Summer Croatia Design/Build 2013 Program is a service learning opportunity which brings students to the Psihijatrijska Bolnica Rab on the Island of Rab on the Mid-Adriatic Coast. Students will collaborate with our partners, the residents and therapists at the hospital to design and build some small modest therapeutic spaces within the hospital complex. This project will build upon work that was completed in Fall 2012. The hospital contains extensive lavender fields, natural areas and a cluster of wards with courtyards and open spaces. Prior to being a hospital, the site was used for officers at the Rab Concentration Camp during WWII.

Education: Undergraduate, graduate and non-matriculated students in landscape architecture, architecture, anthropology, fine arts and other fields may apply. Students will design and build an "interactive landscape." Students will learn the skills of small site design and construction detailing, management and community participation.

Adventure: Rab is strategically located by Zadar, Rijeka, the Velibit mountains, Island Krk and the Adriatic Coast and is accessible from Zagreb. These sites have re-known vernacular building, historic landscapes, and natural phenomena, which we will explore. Croatia has rich and varied features including Plitvice Lakes National Park, a World Heritage Site. This is the background through which we will explore the culture and history of Croatia.
