Environmental Design fosters an innovative, interdisciplinary education to prepare students for practice and advanced study in the design-based fields of architecture, landscape architecture and planning. Faculty push forth the frontiers of design research and practice in order to train students to design sustainable buildings, neighborhoods, cities and regions. Core to the program is the blending of ecological, economic and aesthetic concerns, using evidence-based knowledge to inform design and planning decisions, and fostering a spirit of service to diverse communities, social justice and ecological sustainability.
