50 Years of Advancing Design, Technology, and Culture
During its 50-year history, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design has been an innovator in identifying what architects are taught. From the invention of 3D computer programs; to the integration of sustainability in a design curriculum; to the incorporation of large scale CNC robotics in a school of architecture in the world; the Department has critically defined the topics, curriculum, and knowledge necessary to keep its graduates relevant in a changing world. During 2015-16 we will celebrate our 50th year by honoring the Department’s faculty and their many innovations and accomplishments with a series of presentations and conversations.
