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.


Michael Shoriak speaks at New Mexico preservation conference

November 06, 2017

Tulane School of Architecture Adjunct Lecturer Michael Shoriak recently spoke at the New Technologies for the Historic Preservation of Earthen Structures in the State of New Mexico conference. Hosted by the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning and National Park Service, the workshop taught new digital documentation techniques for use in preservation work.

Shoriak’s presentation, “Digital Technologies, a Present and Future Use in Student Historic Preservation Work,” provided an introduction to the topic. He utilized student work from the Preservation Studies program to generate discussion on developing digital documentation programs. The workshop included hands-on training in photogrammetry and laser scanning at Pecos National Park.

Shoriak is co-founder and director of the architecture conservation laboratory at Cypress Building Conservation, an architectural conservation company specializing in historic material analysis and hands-on restoration.
