Alumni’s work

Construction is a fundamental step in architecture. For this reason, YACademy offers its students the opportunity to participate in the process of realizing their own ideas. Students will gain practical experience on the construction site and, above all, the authorship of projects built for excellent clients, destined for a major media echo and capable of defining a turning point in their professional career.
