Our Mission

Through our graduate degrees in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Planning, together with our Master of Environmental Design and PhD research degrees, we provide professional education informed by research, and research degrees informed by practice. Collectively, we provide a distinct interdisciplinary approach, well-suited to practice in a complex urbanizing world. 

Our Approach

We believe design must engage multiple, and often conflicting, environmental contexts. These include the built and natural, the historical and technological, the cultural and social, and the physical and digital. This environmental Design approach to architecture, landscape architecture, and planning is interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial. We do more than teach and research about policies and practice – we explore and push the boundaries on the power of great design and citizenship, making a lasting, positive impact.
