DESIGN IN ACTION

The GCA aims to cultivate high-performing industry professionals, measurable community impact, and peer-reviewed research and creative activity at the leading edges of our allied disciplines: Architecture, Construction Science, Environmental Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Regional & City Planning, and Urban Design.
