Learning and Leading in 2020
Last semester, the firm welcomed to the studio a talented intern, Michael Njo, an IPAL student from The Catholic University of America. The IPAL (Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure) program was created by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) in 2015. The program offers a dynamic, innovative path to licensure for students who are dedicated to becoming an architect by integrating the opportunity to gain the real-world experience necessary to complete the Architectural Experience Program® (AXP®) and ensuring that each IPAL student can take all six divisions of the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®).
Partners By Design
Our firm’s collective involvement with industry and professional organizations is led by the participation of our Partners. Their roles in the community and recent election to the Boards of two distinguished organizations establish a solid foundation for our staff at Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS to build on. In this week’s #DesignLINE, we highlight the missions and some of the latest happenings at the National Building Museum and the International Student House in Washington, DC.
