The School is uniquely positioned in its pursuit of research objectives. Our mission is to prepare the next generation of leaders in architecture practice and education through historical literacy, cutting-edge technologies, and time-tested techniques that will allow us build a future at once more humane, functional, sustainable, and beautiful. The School takes pride in the ethical and moral dimensions in the education process, seeing it as critical to the judgment of research endeavors. Research priorities at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture align with several key areas:
- Health and the Built Environment
- Technology and Architecture
- Urbanism and Housing
- Architectural History and Theory
Beyond these we have faculty focused research and lab infrastructure to support research at all levels including faculty, post-docs, PhD, graduate and undergraduate research.
