Project Description

Architecture & Design Students Get 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.
