The Department of Architecture is a rich and varied educational environment for the study and practice of architecture and art. It has strong traditions of concern for human values, and for finding appropriate roles for architecture in society. It is a place where the individual creativity of a student can be cultivated and nurtured in a framework of values that is humanistically, socially, and environmentally responsible.

The Department's range of activity extends from addressing significant social, ecological, and environmental issues to building in today's market economy; from recent and future technological advances, especially in the areas of computation and energy, to advances in design practice and research. The Department seeks to relate these issues to architectural theory and practice in this and other countries, bringing them into relationship with the skills, thinking, and heritage of architecture.

MIT, the oldest school of architecture in the USA, is also vitally alive to the new issues facing architecture. We are also a small school with excellent resources and a tradition of individualized instruction. Like everyone else, we can always define additional needs; but, on a comparative basis with other schools of architecture, MIT supports us well not only in faculty, but in space, computation resources, and much more -- especially in being a diverse and challenging institution.

This is a school you should know about. Come and visit us.
