Special Programs


Experience architecture through our intensive special programs that are designed to introduce or deepen your understanding of the built environment and how we as architects shape this experience.


Lecture Series

Our international lecture series brings a diverse mix of highly distinguished guests and interesting young practices to our school to engage with faculty and students and to talk about their work. Recent speakers include: Frank Barkow (Barkow Leibinger – Berlin) /Michael Bell (Bell Seong Architecture – New York) / Peter Busby (Perkins and Will – San Francisco) / Sir Peter Cook (Crab Studio – London) / Neil Denari (NMDA) / Sascha Glasl (spaceandmatter – Amsterdam) Andés Jacques (Andés Jacques Architects – Madrid) / Wes Jones (Jones Partners) / Georg Rafailidis (Davidson Rafailidis) / among many others.

Social Engagement

Many of our students are change makers and leaders, who are able to advocate for social equity. Engagement with issues that confront our contemporary society, particularly in the public urban context, is intertwined with the architecture curriculum supporting students with a passion to build for good.

Design Build Studio

The Design Build Studio takes the mission of B.Lab into the curriculum inviting 4th and 5th year B.Arch and BA students to engage real clients and users, investigate real sites and propose and build real solutions that harness all of the skills learned in the architecture program.
