The Gridshell design-build project under construction outside of the west side of the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture building. It is designed and built by architecture students. This is a rendering of the final plan for that project.

The five-year program that culminates in the accredited Bachelor of Architecture degree comprises:

1) a foundation (pre-architecture) year
2) a three-year professional core and
3) a fifth year focusing on design options and a senior capstone project.

Admission to the Professional Phase (second through fifth years) of the program is selective and competitive. The three-year professional core emphasizes five major areas: design/communication, history/theory, technologies, practice/management, and electives. Fifth-year design options vary but typically include sustainable design, historic preservation, community design, lightweight structures, design-build, and behavioral aspects in design.

Throughout the professional program architectural studies are balanced by general education requirements in three areas of knowledge: individuals and societies, traditions and cultures, and natural sciences. In addition, both open and architectural electives are required. Because the School has a strong commitment to general education and breadth of study outside architecture, the curriculum allows for the pursuit of a minor in another discipline.
