OLIN Internship

Posted on

OLIN Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, located in the heart of historic Philadelphia, has been creating distinguished landscapes and urban designs worldwide for over forty years.

OLIN’S 2018 Summer Internship Program provides an elite group of outstanding students an opportunity to work alongside award-winning and industry-leading designers and practitioners for ten weeks starting on June 4th. Both undergraduate and graduate students advancing to their final year of study in an accredited landscape architecture program are encouraged to apply by February 12th, 2018.


OLIN’s Summer Internship Program is designed to provide a select group of the most outstanding students from the world’s best colleges and universities an opportunity to work on real, world-class projects alongside designers and practitioners who are among the most creative landscape architects in the industry.


One of the most exciting and unique experiences our interns have is the Intern Project, where they work as a design team. These projects often help communities in need, like schools. It is a first chance for aspiring landscape architects to own a project that has actual clients and can lead to meaningful change in a community.


Over the course of the summer, you will visit the most iconic landscape sites and tour OLIN’s award-winning projects in Philadelphia, New York, and Washington D.C.


Our informal “4×4” lunchtime lecture series is one way we communicate how we work, how we think, and how we build world-changing landscapes. We share recipes for success, from new technologies to trending philosophies in analysis, visualization, modeling, infrastructure, rendering, animation, psychology, ecology, and (of course) design.


It is important to us to make time as a team for more serious design conversations. Our monthly DESIGN LAB presentation series is a way for us to stimulate deeper conversations about our specific projects and how they are contextualized in the contemporary milieu.

Please visit Picture Yourself at OLIN for more information.

Applications are due February 12, 2018
