Welcome to Design Thinking

Studio is the backbone of our undergraduate education and the epicenter of architecture students’ lives. Our bright, open studio spaces give you both your own place and the opportunity to collaborate with hundreds of students and professors as passionate about design as you are.

Your professor—an award-winning local architect or one of the world’s leading sustainability experts—doesn’t stand at the front of a 200-seat lecture hall; the two of you engage in intense conversation at your desk, sketching and questioning and pushing the boundaries of your project. You and your small cohort—5 to 12 students—develop collaborative friendships, and your work absorbs the creativity and energy of the studio environment. Studio life is not limited to the studio space, it extends into dFAB and the SHOP, the campus and the community.
