The Next Accreditation Review Visit for the Architecture Program: 2018

The primary aim is to stress the importance of design as a method of inquiry and resolution. Students are taught to solve architectural problems through the exploration of original and promising architectural expressions and ideas.

The Department believes that architecture and design is essentially a rigorous act of creativity, research and scholarship and encourages a pluralistic intellectual environment in which diverse ideas can be investigated and tested.

The studio provides an ongoing forum for discourse at all levels of the curriculum. The studio focuses curriculum activities including issues of social and human behavior and concern, response to the physical environment, ethical responsibility for ecologically sustainable design and the cultural context in which architecture is developed.
