CAPLA Futures Council

The CAPLA Futures Council is a multi-perspective advisory body for the college.

It is through the lens of this group of luminaries from the academy, practice, industry and government that the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture seeks a regular and productive exchange to identify the grand challenges of the built environment. This exchange reflects the trends we should anticipate in our research and in the approaches we take in the classroom around the CAPLA vision: Building a Changing World.
