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.

A new book on best practices in public interest design education includes a case study written by Emilie Taylor Welty, a School of Architecture professor of practice and design/build manager at the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design, and Maggie Hansen, the center’s former director. The contributed chapter features a 2015 Small Center project, Sanfoka Mobile Market.

Public Interest Design Education Guidebook: Curricula, Strategies, and SEED Academic Case Studies” (Routledge, 2018) presents the work and ideas of more than 60 thought-leaders that together are shaping a broad curriculum of public interest design. Written in a guidebook format that includes projects from across design disciplines, the publication describes the learning critical to pursuing an inclusive, informed design practice.

"We are honored to have the work of our students and faculty showcased within a book about best practices and innovative approaches to design education," said Taylor Welty.

The second book in Routledge’s Public Interest Design Guidebook series, the editors and contributors feature a range of examples and strategies where educational and community-originated goals unite.
