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.

ARCH 3031/6031

Course Description

The 3031/6031 design studio provides an increased focus on the material reality of buildings—linking material selection, detail and assembly to design concepts and the intended experiential presence of a building. Principals of programmatic organization and the integration of building plan, section and elevation will also be emphasized. The studio will extend and reinforce the lessons, themes and skills of previous design studios and will be important preparation for the "Integrated Studio" required the following spring.

ARCH 1011/6011

As an introduction to the basic fundamental methods and principles of architectural design, students are given an immediate experience of the design process, developing their capacity to conceive, manipulate and analyze architectural form and space. An emphasis on verbal skills, and graphic and material techniques for architectural representation, enable students to express and communicate their ideas. The studio develops the students' capacity for critical thinking through constructive evaluation.
