UC Berkeley graduate, Adam Varat, has been selected from over 100 students to participate in the 21st annual EDAW Summer Student Program. 

Varat will be participating as an intern in the redevelopment of the Stapleton Airport in Denver, Colo., at one time the fifth busiest airport in the United States, and the largest urban redevelopment project in the country. The airport will be converted into a thriving community built on smart growth and environmentally sustainable principles, said Sandy D’Elia, Principal and Director of Development of EDAW, San Francisco. 

Varat is currently a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The internship was created and sponsored by EDAW, a San Francisco based consulting firm in environmental planning, landscape architecture, urban design and economic development.
