STUDENT EXPERIENCE

Images from our summer graduate studio with Keith Kaseman, co-designer of the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial, whose students explored digital techniques and methods to envision future cities.

Trips outside the studio are an important part of learning at the College of Architecture and Design. This past spring, students went to Los Angeles for a week to learn and prepare work for a client provided by our BarberMcMurry Professor Lawrence Scarpa, a pioneer in the practice of sustainable architecture and winner of over 50 international design awards, including the 2014 National Design Award for Architecture Design from the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt.
