The programs are led by a global faculty of practitioners and scholars who are actively engaged in contemporary architectural discourse and production. The curriculum evolves continuously and dynamically, in a manner that is only possible at an institution entirely devoted to architecture.
The programs promote cross-pollination from other fields of study in a critical manner, and a practice that derives from an emphasis on process and a synthesis of thinking, inquiry, and execution. They promote experimentation and creative freedom, and are at once global and local, comprehensive and current.
