Urban Design Build Studio (UDBS) students worked alongside students from the Universidad de las Américas (UDLA) in Quito, Ecuador in November. UDBS students and faculty traveled to Quito during the XX Pan American Bienal de Arquitectura to participate in the La Tolita Workshop, which itself was part of a larger research project and community-based design effort led by UDLA in Guapulo, a neighborhood in Northern Quito.
Join the SoA Seniors to see the work of Thesis, the final year studio where architectural ideas are developed to operate critically within the discipline. The project installations illustrate challenging proposals that explore contemporary questions. During the exhibition, students will present their work for discussion and critique.

SoA Professor Kristen Kurland delivers a keynote address on Smart Cities and Campus Innovation during the ARCHIBUS Nexus 2017 Conference in National Harbor, Maryland.
The next AAO webinar is about the power of collaboration. Six nonprofits in Pittsburgh offer K-12 architectural education programs of one stripe or another, so they joined together to form the Architecture Learning Network (ALN) to help high school students navigate their options. What began with a shared calendar listing grew into a system of learning pathways and digital badges thanks to a grant from the Sprout Fund.
