EX-CHANGE: A celebration of work at the School of Architecture – latest edition now in print!
EX-CHANGE is a publication celebrating the work of the SoA from 1st year to PhD. Inaugurated in 2017, EX-CHANGE represents an ongoing opportunity to shine new light on the SoA studio-based and MS/PhD programs and to position the work within larger questions of research and practice.
This booklet is a compendium of thought, work, and discussion generated by EX-CHANGE. It includes student work from the studios, research labs, and centers alongside excerpts from the moderated conversation between students and critics based on questions generated by studios.

Public Interest Design Education Guidebook: Curricula, Strategies, and SEED Academic Case Studies (2018)
This guidebook presents the pedagogical framework and collective curriculum necessary to teach public interest designers. The book’s editors and contributors feature a range of learning competencies supported by distinct teaching strategies where educational and community-originated goals unite. Written in a guidebook format that includes projects from across design disciplines, this book describes the learning deemed most critical to pursuing an inclusive, informed design practice that meets the diverse needs of both students and community partners. The book features the work of the UDBS and PROJECT RE_.
Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design (2017)
Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon is an exhibition showcasing rare photographs, film, high-quality reproductions, and interactive software reconstructions examining the formative period of numerical control and Computer-Aided Design technologies (1949-1976), along with a selection of experimental work by computational designers working today.
Computational Design: Practices, Histories, Infrastructures symposium (2017)
This two-day event at Carnegie Mellon University examines computation as a subject of both scholarly and creative inquiry in architecture and other design fields. It accompanies the exhibition Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design and seeks to situate contemporary design methods in architecture and other creative fields in relation to broader histories, disciplinary frames, and technical infrastructures.
of More-Than-Human Spaces (2017)
An interdisciplinary panel discussion
This interdisciplinary panel discussion reflects on the historical roles (expected and unexpected) of non-human others in crafting urban and regional landscapes, and the politics, biopolitics, and aesthetics of more-than-human interactions. Participants will foreground their work on, with or alongside non-humans, in blurred 'nature-culture borderlands', to rethink the messy politics of expertise, the assemblage of agency, and explore the unforeseen spaces that design and planning entail.
inter·punct is a journal for architecture founded by students at Carnegie Mellon University and supported by the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture. The journal has released two issues - para·meter (2013) and inter·view (2016).
