Students in the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design leave with more than just a degree—they leave with an expanded view of the world, a passion to facilitate change, and the skills to make a lasting impact.

Where disparate ideas collide. The Sam Fox School is a place for experimentation. Here, cutting-edge programs combine to create open forums for new modes of thinking. Every day, you’ll interact with designers, artists, architects, curators, and theorists. These encounters, however brief or informal, will influence the way you think, work, and make. They offer the opportunity to see the spaces we share in an ever-evolving light. Our studios are organized around cumulative, collective experiences. As part of a tier one research institution, we provide a rigorous academic environment, where students develop a love of craft and the ability to move fluidly between digital and analog platforms. You’ll learn to work indepen­ dently, in a culture that supports your curiosity, and collaboratively, across disciplines, with people whose ideas and expertise are as provocative and enlightening as your own. Sometimes, the most radical approach is straightforward. We teach our students the grounding principles that will empower them to take their ideas wherever they want to go.

More than ever, Sam Fox School students want to bring design education closer to citizenry—to expand their sense of responsibility and be problem solvers working in real-world conditions. Through our research in building technology, cultural arts, ecology, housing, history, and urban sustainability, we make connections with people intent on changing the world and how we live in it.” H E AT H E R WOO F T E R S AM AN D M A R I LY N FOX PROFE SS OR D I R ECTO R, CO L L E G E O F A RCH I TE CTURE AND G R A D UAT E S C H OO L OF A RCH I TE CTURE & U R BA N D E S I G N

engaged We design for people. Our work affects people’s lives. At the Sam Fox School, you’ll learn to design for access, for equity, for conservation, and for sustainability. But most importantly, you’ll learn to design for people. Our projects tackle global challenges one family, neighborhood, and city at a time. We established our own Office for Socially Engaged Practice and Center for Health Research & Design to connect us with campus partners, community advocates, and government programs to work on design initiatives that serve communities. We find better ways for systems to work for people. Our students have worked on projects that tackle design issues related to urban segregation, water quality, education access, and health care delivery. By responding directly to our partners’ needs, our students and faculty have made a positive impact in communities around the world. Design starts at the human level. We are committed to advancing social justice through design.

rivers converge The area’s biggest biogeographical features create a fertile ecological and experimental terrain for resilient design and research.

St. Louis is a city of progressive industry. Located at the confluence of the country’s great waterways, it is a place of discovery, enlightenment, and exchange. With an architectural landscape that is modern and historic, the city has deep cultural roots and a thriving creative scene. Beloved for its distinctive red brick and its incredible urban parks, St. Louis is a laboratory and archive, epicenter and flux. It is a place for questioning and exploration. Its neighborhoods are vibrant, varied, and alive. This is a city that reveres its designers, artists, thinkers, and makers, and our students are lively contributors to its culture. Here, graduates have gotten their first public commissions, opened their first practices, and started businesses from furniture design to fashion. This is where they got their start. You can go anywhere from here.

One of the places I’ve always gravitated toward here is the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, just north of the city. There’s something very powerful about being in that place, with the rivers rushing by you.

The sixth building in the Sam Fox School complex, Weil Hall is a hub for our graduate programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Illustration & Visual Culture, and Visual Art. With its light-filled studios, it is an inspiring place for creative activity, advanced scholarship, innovative research, and bold experimentation. Weil Hall is one of five buildings on the Danforth Campus to recently be awarded LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. It’s the council’s highest green building certification and an indication of the University’s deep commitment to campus sustainability.

An integral part of the Sam Fox School, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum is a tremendous resource for students and faculty. Originally designed by Fumihiko Maki, the elegant limestone building houses a world-renowned permanent collection and features exhibitions of leading modern and contemporary art, architecture, and design each year. Students enjoy free membership and can attend guest lectures, panel discussions, and film screenings inspired by the exhibits. The Museum’s expansion features a striking new 34-foot-tall polished stainless-steel facade. A soaring, glass-lined lobby welcomes visitors with an installation by Tomás Saraceno. The Museum’s collection—which includes strong holdings in 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century European and American paintings, sculptures, prints, installations, and photographs—can be seen on all three floors of the building.

As the boundaries between nations become more fluid, our cultures, economies, and ecosystems are more connected than ever. That’s why international studios are integral to our programs. The Sam Fox School is part of a global network with over 30 university partners around the world. We offer programs on Europe, South America, Asia, and Africa.

The future is interdisciplinary. We believe the best opportunity to learn comes from the person standing next to you. At the Sam Fox School, that person usually isn’t just an architect or a designer. They’re likely also an artist, an activist, a philosopher, a writer, or an entrepreneur. We teach to the many dimensions our students bring to the table. Our students develop a collabor­ ative ethos by working with people outside their disciplines, where they are influenced by provocative, enlightening, and varied expertise. Your educational experience shouldn’t be fixed and narrow— it should allow for exploration and discovery. This is a place for you to learn to think, make, and work outside disciplinary silos. We cater to students with ever-expanding interests and new ways of thinking about their futures.

Dual Degrees MARCH / ML A / MUD

If you have multifaceted interests within the field, we encourage you to pursue a dual degree. You can earn a dual master’s degree from any of the programs within the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design faster than completing two degrees separately.

Joint Degrees MBA / MCM / MENG / MSW

For students who have diverse interests outside the field, we offer joint degree programs with Business, Construction Management, Computer Science & Engineering, and Social Work. We want your degree program to be specific­ally tailored to the career you’re after, and to enable you to take full advantage of the academic resources of Washington University, a tier one research institution.

I came to the graduate program with a non-design background, so from early on, I was interested in how architecture interacted with other fields. Studying urban design helped me understand problems at multiple scales, and to grapple with the realities of economics and policy in how design ideas play out.� ANU S A M A R A JI VA / M ARCH + M UD

MARCH

Master of Architecture Architecture is more than an addition to the built environment— it’s a translation of aspirations into space. Buildings are part o fa metabolic system, responsive to the environment surrounding them. Architecture speaks to the poetics of human endeavors, contributing to cultural and social enterprises. In our program, you will learn to create structures that are not only beautiful to inhabit but also poised to contribute to greater ambitions. We will teach you how to design responsibly and synthetically in response to technology and place. We draw from our long history to advance pioneering research in housing, fabrication, and socially engaged practice. We believe in craft, in risk, and in delivering sophisticated ideas that push architectural ideas and abilities to the edge. St. Louis is a place of unprecedented access. Our studios collaborate with major institutions like the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and St. Louis Lambert International Airport as well as vital new cultural centers. Working at the confluence of environmental and social issues, your projects will reflect the complexity of contemporary global concerns. You will graduate with the theoretical, technical, and historical foundation needed to take your work anywhere. But the projects you create at WashU will have real impact right here. This is a place for you to cultivate your own voice within the field.

Curriculum We offer a practice-oriented program that focuses on the role of architects in society and culture with particular emphasis on sustainability and housing. Each semester, in addition to the design studio sequence, students select from a range of courses that develop conceptual, formal, and technical abilities.

Master of Landscape Architecture Our MLA program seizes on its location in St. Louis and the Midwest—the center of the fourth-largest watershed in the world. Working at the confluence of three great rivers—Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio—we are poised to develop groundbreaking adaptive design strategies that transform contemporary and complex regional, national, and international dilemmas into future resilient landscapes. Our pedagogy and research efforts are pragmatic, with an experimental and interdisciplinary approach. Students are equipped with emerging methodologies to immediately engage 21st-century landscape architecture practices that resiliently adapt to rapidly changing ecological, technological, and social dynamics. Students can earn a Master of Landscape Architecture in combination with degrees in architecture or urban design, while collaborating with partners across the University in art and design, environmental studies, the humanities, public health, and engineering, among others. While deeply committed to working in the St. Louis region, our students also engage in national and international research and projects. Students have access to other world-class resources, such as the Missouri Botanical Garden and Shaw Nature Reserve; St. Louis’ 108 city parks, including Forest Park, Fairground Park, and Tower Grove Park; the field stations at Dunn Ranch Prairie and the University’s Tyson Research Center; and numerous community organizations with whom we partner on projects and research initiatives. Through intensive engagement with place, students study issues not only related to land and water, but also those that power social and cultural networks. Now more than ever, we must face the most complex challenges of our time with rigorous modes of discovery and engagement. Our program is committed to this endeavor. We welcome global citizens to join us in cultivating resilient cultural and social practices through responsive and responsible design.

Curriculum The program is built around a combination of core studios and seminars that address the following primary concerns: professional and disciplinary advancement, waterbased and riverine adaptations, urban and ecological networks, environmental and social justice, climate change and extreme weather, and community engagement. Our program is STEM-designated. Graduates earn an accredited professional degree in landscape architecture, allowing them to become registered landscape architects.

Core courses include: Landscape Representation, Digital Tools, Planting Design, Landscape Ecology, Research in the Landscape, Landscape Technology, and Thesis Studio.

Foodscapes & Urban Agriculture

Recent Special Topics Studios Contested Terrains: Chicago River Studio Reclamation and restoration have emerged as guiding design values. But, sometimes, these principles gloss over existing social frictions and contentious associated displacements. Focusing on the waterways that put Chicago on the imperial map, students examined the pre­ colonial portage and the postcolonial histories of upheaval of the river and canal system. Dunn Ranch: Critical Conservation Practices This studio developed a strategic landscape systems plan for the management of Dunn Ranch Prairie in northwest Missouri. It is an important habitat for bison, prairie chickens, grassland bird species, terrestrial mammals, and myriad wildflower species. The studio evaluated how conservation can balance human needs while protecting biodiversity.

Master of Urban Design Urbanization is an increasing and constantly changing condition of contemporary society. This presents enormous opportunities for—and challenges to—the creation of resilient, livable, and healthy urban habitats. Cities are the largest consumers and producers of global resources and our greatest agents of social change. Through the design of our cities, we address the potential of the urban world. At the Sam Fox School, we focus on how to transform cities for the 21st century as active and informed participants. Our innovative structure allows you to pursue advanced design and research while developing a rigorous theoretical and professional foundation. Studios integrate concepts of architecture, landscape architecture, and infrastructural and ecological urbanism. They are research-oriented, yet speculative and exploratory. Founded by Fumihiko Maki and Roger Montgomery in 1961, our program is built for experiential immersion learning. Your work will be deeply engaged with place—in St. Louis, throughout the United States, and abroad. Locally, we collaborate with agencies and communities on real initiatives to create more equitable and environmentally conscientious strategies, systems, and cities. Internationally, we work with renowned practitioners in intense, mega-growth developments to address the evolving urbanization across the globe. Urban design takes an expansive view of the built environment. It unifies the social, political, economic, and environmental forces in our cities. Our program prepares you for global leadership in the development of humane cities for a more sustainable world.
