We want to train architects who take position, are conscious of the impact they have and are ethically aware. Our students work with real people to resolve real problems and are not afraid to fail. They use architecture to improve the quality of people's lives and have a positive impact, now and in the future. With the above in mind, our motto is: act conscious, get dirty, add value.
