Welcome to

This is not your typical classroom. Design begins on Day 1. Open floorplan, open to ideas, and for open minds.

Studio is a place for creation. The steady hum of design iteration pulses all semester as ideas are sketched with pencils and refined using the latest digital tools and technology. Work side-by-side with our faculty members – who are overwhelmingly full-time professors (many manage to maintain a thriving professional practice as well).

Design requires creative spaces

Studio – It’s a place. It’s a course. It’s your team. If you’re looking for large lecture halls with a professor who delivers one-way education, look elsewhere. We are collaborators. Studio culture encourages dialogue, process, and healthy competition.

  • There’s 111,000 square feet of state-of-the-art resources and workspaces, all within steps of your studio desk.
  • We work in a work of art. Our building was named one of the Top 15 copper-clad buildings in the world by Architectural Digest in 2015.
  • Within the Stuckeman Family Building, the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library holds roughly 30,000 print volumes on topics from 1850 to the present.
  • Nestled in the historic Hort Woods in the Arts District of University Park, we are connected to nature and have access to the talent and inspiration of the School of Visual Arts and the rest of the College of Arts & Architecture.
