We educate leaders in the classical architectural tradition and to address the critical issues facing the built environment through research, professional activity and public service.
We embrace the idea that architecture and urbanism do more than merely provide the shelter where we live; they shape the public and private realms in which we inhabit our planet and develop our cultures, economies and futures.
A distinct group of practicing architects and academics whose areas of expertise include the making of cities and their buildings from antiquity to today.
