Master of Architecture
Architecture is more than an addition to our built environment—it is a translation of aspirations into space. As part of a metabolic system, buildings are responsive to the environment surrounding them and speak to the poetics of human endeavors, contributing to cultural and social enterprises.
We believe in craft, in risk, and in delivering sophisticated strategies that push architectural ideas and abilities to the edge.
Our students learn to create spaces that are both beautiful to inhabit and designed responsively, in consideration of the environment, technology, and people. Their projects reflect the complexity of contemporary concerns, working at the confluence of environmental and social issues.
