The ASOS are vertically-integrated advanced studios that encourage inter-disciplinary collaboration from the arts and technology, research and design, large scale urban and ecological thinking, to detailed investigations of materials, fabrication strategies, and form strategies – the heart of the CMU and SoA experience. Offered every semester, the studios cover various topics chosen by studio faculty based on their research and design specialties. Topics vary from year to year, and are constantly evolving to keep pace with the rapidly changing profession and global scene. Learn more and view previous studio offerings on the ASOS page.
