Rather than teaching one particular style of design, the architecture program prepares students to be sensitive to the needs of their clients and to adapt to the constraints of the surrounding environment.
Architectural Design students gain pre-professional knowledge of architecture and related subjects such as exhibition design, furniture design and fabrication, and sustainable design. They learn to solve complex problems and to design buildings, interiors, and robust structures that satisfy social, aesthetic, safety, and ecological considerations. This hands-on approach includes model making as an analog for the building process.
The Architectural Design Department hosts a series of architects, engineers, and fabricators for "Tuesday Talks" to discuss prevalent topics in the industry. Past speakers have discussed sustainability, landmark design projects, innovation, and more.
