All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

URBANbuild program launches new website

November 20, 2017

Tulane University School of Architecture’s award-winning design/build program, URBANbuild, recently launched a new website showcasing the program’s evolution and impact over the past 12 years.

URBANbuild brings together a team of architecture students to collaboratively design and construct a home over the course of two semesters. The program works to enrich students’ development as professional designers while helping to revitalize New Orleans’ rich heritage.

“It has been extremely rewarding to spend the past few months working with a great team of web designers, writers and students who have worked tirelessly to collect and organize the content for this new website,” said URBANbuild Director Byron Mouton.

The redesigned website tells the story of the many people, partnerships and processes it takes to make each project a reality.

“Everyone who has participated in adding to the program's body of research should be extremely proud,” said Mouton. “To our current and past students, congratulations. To our community partners and administration, thank you so much for the continued support."

In-depth project profiles feature URBANbuild’s growing body of work, with alumni case studies detailing the program’s impact on individual students. The online resource will serve as a tool to further the URBANbuild mission and chronicle future projects.

The website was created by Extra Small Design and made possible by the Roloson Foundation. Visit www.urbanbuild.tulane.edu for more information.
