AT THE COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE, PLANNING AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, WE ARE BUILDING A CHANGING WORLD.

We are innovators of transformational strategies, championing a future-oriented perspective where hands-on design and planning stimulate sustainable innovation and solve the grand challenges of the built environment in a daring, authentic environment.

CAPLA is made up of two schools, the School of Architecture and the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning; together with the college, we house 13 academic programs. Additionally, the Drachman Institute functions as the primary outreach arm of the college.

We are dedicated to inclusive excellence; the recognition and acceptance of the talents, worldviews, perceptions, cultures, and skills that diverse communities bring to the educational enterprise that can be harnessed to prepare students for leading, living, and working in a diverse world.
