The study of architecture

The study of architecture involves an exploration of diverse disciplines that influence the built environment. It not only prepares students for a future in the profession of architecture but provides an extraordinary foundation for a multitude of interdisciplinary and related design fields.

Undergraduate Studies

If you are someone who aspires to be a professional with a social mission, if you appreciate the value of science and technology, and if you are intrigued by the revelations offered by works of art—then the study of architecture may well be right for you.

Graduate Programs

At the Azrieli School of Architecture and urbanism, we prepare students for a future in the profession and provide an extraordinary foundation for a multitude of interdisciplinary and related design fields.  Students learn the conflicting demands of function, aesthetics, technology and economy and are trained in a variety of expressions: writing, model-making, drawing, photography, video, digital media and communications.
