The concentration connects technical architectural training with the humanities and provides an awareness of global, environmental, social and economic issues in the built environment. This approach is meant to provide future architects and urban planners with the tools needed in today’s global, urban society.
Apart from training careful observation, critical analysis and problem solving, students will acquire skills in sketching, drafting, model-making, and digital rendering. By combining a carefully selected range of classes in architectural design, the humanities, engineering and technology, and urban life and theory, students will acquire necessary proficiency for pursuing a graduate degree in architecture after Brown.
