The Auburn University
College of Architecture, Design and Construction is one of Places' partner schools
We are a community of intellectually curious designers and thinkers, builders and makers, leaders and stewards. Through critical thinking, deep reasoning and effective communication, we explore and learn about the transformative power of design, planning and construction. Our rigorous, relevant and nationally ranked programs provide numerous opportunities to engage in the different aspects of creating place, space and experience from the intimate to the infinite.
The college comprises the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture, the McWhorter School of Building Science and the Department of Industrial and Graphic Design. We offer undergraduate programs in architecture, interior architecture, building construction, graphic design, industrial design and environmental design. Our graduate programs in building construction, community planning, integrated design and construction, industrial design, landscape architecture and real estate development allow both specialization and integration. In addition, signature pedagogies such as the Rural Studio, the Urban Studio and the Center for Construction Innovation and Collaboration are influential, distinguishing features of our academic programs.
