The DesignCorps Logo

 

DesignCorps is a collective of graduate students from the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design who will review, accept and implement proposals for client-based design projects with the supervision of professional design faculty. Originating in the Master of Arts in Exhibition Design program, DesignCorps takes on 3-dimensional, narrative and environmental design projects such as exhibitions, installations, interior designs and pop-up experiences for clients in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. In the spirit of multi-disciplinary and collaborative design-thinking, DesignCorps includes students from all five graduate programs at the Corcoran School:

DesignCorps serves the important goals of:

  • providing graduate students opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge of professional practice;
  • building graduate student portfolios;
  • connecting the Corcoran graduate programs with the broad base of professional clients in the D.C. area;
  • facilitating creative exchange between the Corcoran graduate programs and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
