Come Rain or Shine

Apr 29, 2021

In this special episode, Steven Grant, Director of Architectural Studies in Themed Environments Integration at the University of Florida College of Design, Construction, and Planning, joins the show with students, Emily Page and Nick Karafilis, to discuss the program.

A 28-year veteran of Walt Disney Imagineering and the former president of the American Institute of Architects Orlando Chapter, Steven unpacks the inspiration behind the endeavor and what’s required to make similar projects a reality. While integrating the profession into unchartered academia can be challenging, as Steven, Emily, and Nick explain, providing students collaboration opportunities in educational arenas is its own reward.
