The Urban Design Build Studio (UDBS) was recently honored by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) as a winner of the 2018-2019 Collaborative Practice Award for the project HOME RE_CONSIDERED : HOME RE_DEFINED.
inter·punct is currently working on a project, a collection of zines, focusing on the topic of architectural pedagogy — and they need your input! For more information please visit the submissions page on the inter·punct website.
The workshops focus on skill building central to the architectural design process. The 8-week program is held on Saturdays beginning February 23 through May 4, 2019 from 9:30am-12:30pm on the CMU campus. Multiple child discounts and scholarships are available.
The Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) program received the maximum allowable 8-year re-accreditation from the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) this fall. Also in 2018, the Master of Architecture (M.Arch) degree program, re-introduced this past year, was granted initial candidacy.
In this seminar, students will earn 3 course credits as they learn to analyze Real Estate Investment opportunities in the context of specific risk and return criteria. Open to all CMU students.
Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture is currently accepting undergraduate and graduate degree program applications for the fall 2019 semester.
The Urban Design Build Studio (UDBS) was awarded the 2018 State of Pennsylvania Impact Design Practice award as well as recognition for the REACH project during last night’s AIA Pennsylvania 2018 Architectural Excellence Design Awards ceremony. Fifth year B.Arch student Timothy Khalifa was also awarded a Student Award during the ceremony.
Professor Emeritus Ömer Akin and PhD-AECM candidates Shalini Priyadarshini and Nizar Eldaher have been selected to present their paper entitled “The Crux of the Matter: Tacit Knowledge Based Value Added Design” at the international conference Design Thinking Research Symposium (DTRS) in South Korea.
The UDBS projects REACH and OV Course were awarded the Design + Innovation Honor Award and Certificate of Merit, respectively, during the Design Pittsburgh 2018 event presented by AIA Pittsburgh this past week.

Adjunct Professor Dr. Francesca Torello and Associate Professor Joshua Bard published an article in the journal Dialectic, issue VI: Craft - The Art of Making Architecture describing the development of Plaster ReCast, a mixed reality app designed to enhance visitor experience at museum plaster cast collections.
The MAAD (CMU-PUM) research video "Free-Oriented Additive Manufacturing" was accepted to the 2018 Association for Robotics in Architecture Conference (Rob|Arch) call for videos and presented at the conference at the ETH in Zurich this past week. This video depicts a novel additive manufacturing application of fused deposition modeling on varying spatial conditions, deposition direction, and geometry to adapt to complex infrastructure conditions.
Associate Professor Joshua Bard presented two papers reflecting the ongoing contributions of the School of Architecture in the fields of robotic construction and additive manufacturing at the ETH in Zurich for the 2018 Association for Robotics in Architecture Conference (Rob|Arch).
The SoA's B.Arch program achieved a ranking of #11 overall in the 2018-19 DesignIntelligence Survey of Architecture Schools, and placed top-ten in 9 of 12 focus areas. Professor & Head Stephen Lee was also named one of the 25 Most Admired Educators this year.
The recently released Public Interest Design Education Guidebook: Curricula, Strategies, and SEED Academic Case Studies (2018) presents the pedagogical framework and collective curriculum necessary to teach public interest designers and features the work of the UDBS and PROJECT RE_.
The School of Architecture welcomes Professor Mine Ozkar, who is joining the SoA's Computational Design Laboratory as a visiting scholar for the 2018-2019 academic year.
The Code Lab, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, and Metro 21 collaborate to use computation to understand how pedestrians use Market Square in order to inform future planning decisions.
The street-level, immersive, and interactive experience allows city planners to develop plans quickly, make changes, and share their ideas with the public.
