PROJECT DESCRIPTION

K•Labs - Real World Experience

Michael Graves believed in the power of architecture and design to make people's lives better. Kean University's Michael Graves College is honoring his legacy through K-LABS, a new design-focused community outreach program providing professional services to area non-profits. K-LABS initiatives encompass new programs in architecture and historic preservation along with longstanding graphic design, interior design, and industrial design endeavors. Through the K-LABS program, Kean's School of Architecture and the Robert Busch School of Design plan to actively engage with organizations and communities throughout the metropolitan New York/New Jersey region. K-LABS service projects will be incorporated into the Kean curriculum, providing students with valuable professional experiences and enabling them to further hone their design skills in a real world environment.
