CIEE Art and Sciences Program in Hyderabad, India
With jaw-dropping architecture that ranges from Gaudi’s unfinished Sangra Família to the avant garde Torre Agbar to the Golden Fish sculpture designed for the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona is dream city for people who love design. Regardless of your Spanish skills, you can see these spectacular structures up close, and learn about the culture and history behind them – and even intern with a leading architectural firm. There’s more – you’ll also travel beyond Barcelona to see more significant examples of design (and culture!) throughout the region.
