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 7 Project Summary

ARCH 2212/6212

This course introduces students to building materials and standard construction methods through a series of lectures, presentations and reading assignments. Two exams will be given and two wall section exercises will be required of the class. The exercises urge the students to synthesize the material presented in the lectures and to develop standard detailing and working document procedures. Evaluation of the exercises is to be based on each student’s demonstration of technical virtuosity and graphic clarity.
