Landscape Architecture: Welcome to Studio | The Penn State Stuckeman School Skip to main content

Welcome to

This is not your typical classroom. Design begins on day one. Open floor plan, open to ideas, and for open minds.

Studio is a collaborative, open philosophy. The steady hum of design iteration buzzes all semester as ideas are sketched with pencils and refined using the latest digital tools and technology. Work side-by-side with our engaged and experienced group of faculty members.

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.

  • 111,000 square feet of state-of-the-art equipment – from virtual reality labs to laser cutters to the wood shop – all within steps of your very own 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 from 1850 to the present.
