The University of Maryland
School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is one of Places' partner schools
The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation provides a process through which students and the professional community can express the creativity, acquire the technical capacity, accept the social responsibility, and recognize a sense of history to make the decisions that shape the built environment. Through research, practice, outreach and teaching, students learn to understand the built environment at all scales: from the history, design, function and impact of a single building or public space to the operation, physical form and socioeconomic system of a metropolitan region.
