  • Welcome Notes

Our built environment defines our way of looking at things, our style of living, and our vision of society and ourselves. The architect defines the living environment and shares that vision. The architect intervenes in the environment, he builds, and he creates a new reality. An architect is needed not only for building a house but also for building the surroundings, the city, and in short, the environment. The environment must be planned, visioned, organized, and sustained for us as well as for generations to come.


At UAP we define Architecture broadly, addressing it both as a product and as a process. Our aims are toward the envisioning of specific environments that are rich, comprehensible, and humanly supportive. Inquiries into the foundations of the discipline, the practice, and the teaching of architecture form some of the underlying tones of architectural education at UAP.


Faculty and students in Design address the foundations of thought, process, and technique. They question the role of design and designers in society and the legitimacy of design action within and across cultural boundaries. Investigation of new ways to describe and manipulate shapes, opening new means to explore complex design artifacts, reflecting on the implications for form and process of emerging institutions in society, in particular, the future workplace and studying the learning of design with the hope to inform the processes of learning and teaching- all form part of the architectural education and experience at UAP.
