University at Buffalo, The State University of New York
Master of Architecture
The School of Architecture and Planning was created half a century ago as a direct challenge to orthodox design education. We live those original principles today, committed to architecture and planning as interdisciplinary problem-solving enterprises, rooted in social engagement, nourished by research-in-practice, animated by making and doing, and committed to meeting the needs of clients, communities, and society in an increasingly complex urban world.
Throughout nearly half a century of work, the people of the School of Architecture and Planning have grappled with how to make cities more livable and humane; how to conserve and produce energy within the urban fabric; how to make every environment more accessible to people of all abilities; and how to make all of the built environment more responsive to our human goals and protective of our increasingly fragile natural ecologies.
