RUMBLE

June 6-10, 2016

 

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design's end of the year all-school exposition between the Westwood and IDEAS campus engages students, faculty and the

international design community in a discourse on the forefront of contemporary design and innovation. With 20,000 square feet of studio and program

installations, 250 projects on view and 90 leading critics and practitioners, RUMBLE redefines the provocative opportunities confronting the next generation of architects.

 

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.
