The School of Architecture is a nexus for the design, theory and practice of architectural, landscape, urban and information environments.

We combine the scholarship, design research, and pedagogy of architectural and urban landscape design; sustainable design and science; architecture, landscape and urban theory and history; and urban informatics and real estate development.

These interrelated foci create the multiple perspectives and expertise required to address the complex issues and opportunities facing our urban and natural environments. We foster interdisciplinary relationships among our School and other related academic units, including the Department of Art + Design, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy.

The School of Architecture provides strong experiential educational opportunities through cooperative education and global study abroad. The School has a strong reciprocity with the profession through co-op and practicing professorships, and we aspire to transform professional practice through our innovative research and instruction.
