WE ENVISION A GENERATION OF ARCHITECTS dedicated to crafting the buildings, places and institutions that create vibrant, vital, and sustainable cities.
Using the rich environmental, historical, and cultural landscape of New Orleans as a laboratory, our architecture programs engage students directly in an ongoing effort to reconsider and rebuild New Orleans. We believe that architects are uniquely suited to be leaders in a movement toward an urban renaissance of sustainable design and community engagement, and our architecture programs provide students with the knowledge, education, and experience they need to be those leaders.
The mission of the Tulane School of Architecture is to prepare students for leadership positions in the design professions and in their communities. This school aspires to provide the highest quality professional education in architecture, to develop and conserve knowledge, and to promote excellence and innovation in architecture, landscape urbanism, preservation, and urban and environmental design and development. We recognize the centrality of design thinking as a process of synthesis that incorporates history, theory, technology, economics, behavior, and culture. The school supports diversity and meaningful engagement with urban and community issues, while embracing the creative potential and imperative of sustainable design.
The Tulane School of Architecture offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in architecture.
