Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design

Students working together at desks in a studio facing out towards Brookings Hall.

The Sam Fox School combines the theoretical and practical, creating an environment where architects, landscape architects, and urban designers study alongside artists, curators, and theorists.

Students are supported and challenged throughout by dedicated faculty practitioners. Our scholars are dedicated to teaching while advancing research in sustainability, fabrication, housing, and socially engaged practice.
