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.

Work by Nicholas Cecchi, AIA (A ’10) and Emily Handley, Assoc. AIA (A ’10) is featured in AIA Chicago’s Functional Objects by Architects, a pop-up exhibit in conjunction with the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial. FOBA, “showcase(s) smaller-scale projects that are tactile, aesthetically intriguing and grounded in utility,” (AIA Chicago).

The 27 objects on display in a transformed shopping center storefront represent the architects’ diverse talents. Cecchi’s pieces include Lumiere le Roc and Vase le Roc, both explorations into spatial tiling designed through an iterative, algorithmic process. Handley's piece, Triangulated Depths, is a quilt which, “explores the intersection between digital design and craft techniques.” A unique fabrication process using paper templating allowed for maximum cutting and sewing precision.

Work by former Tulane School of Architecture faculty members Clare Olsen and Thaddeus Zarse also appears in the exhibit. For more information, click here.
