The School of Architecture emphasizes traditional and classical design, the timely and timeless principles that encourage beauty, community and sustainability. Using both cutting-edge technology and time-tested techniques that were a necessary part of sustainable building before the Industrial Revolution, the School of Architecture has established itself as a leader in the modern green movement. We are part of a continuum from the past to the future, honoring a grand legacy and carrying it forward with new ideas and technologies that preserve both the built and natural environments.
