Who We Are
Architecture at The Design School has been educating aspiring architects, as well as other professionals involved in the construction of our cities and broader built environment, since the 1950s.
Students interested in the design and construction of beautiful new spaces and buildings have found a pathway to their future here. They learn design and analysis of economically and ecologically sustainable built environments and communities, digital design and prototyping of innovative new building systems and technologies, as well as engage in research and advocacy for new definitions of the expansive public role of architects. The Architecture program prepares our students to become leaders in the future of the building industry and beyond.
