Mission Statement

SCI-Arc’s mission is to reimagine the very edges of architecture, educating architects to engage, speculate, and innovate.

The purpose of SCI-Arc’s mission is to assist students, faculty, staff, and the public in the exploration of architectural ideas and issues. Its organization is centered on the idea of the practicing architect as educator, inflecting top-down direction with vigorous open participation and strong individual autonomy. For more than forty years, SCI-Arc has maintained an unequaled reputation for risk and excellence. Its next forty years will be devoted to sustaining, deepening, and securing those values.
