Our design pedagogy is founded on a philosophy of Creating_Making, which is grounded in experiencing the tangible connection between the creative endeavor and the physical act of making. As such, we are committed to maintaining a foundation in the material practices of design, in promoting intellectual engagement with creative processes, in providing both alternative cultural and professional work experiences and in fostering intra-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary opportunities for collaboration. The philosophy of Creating_Making encourages diverse research, critical inquiry and informed experimentation dedicated to reinforcing our core beliefs: a commitment to fostering critical engagement, material aptitude, manual competence and most importantly an ethical commitment to the real, the tangible and the human capital that is architecture. Architecture is a Social Act.

Alumni Voices

“The faculty and staff are committed to helping students explore their own academic interests, supporting them through research and award applications, and helping them find financial aid and employment opportunities.”

Adelle York

Graduate Student at Harvard Graduate School of Design

“There is a culture of experimentation, no doubt a vestige of Bruce Goff, combined with a deep-seeded spirit of pragmatism … This tension is highly productive.”
