UCLA Architecture and Urban Design

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design is a champion of ideas and their articulate expression. Our exceptional faculty — from Pritzker Prize winners to future leaders of the field — teach students to engage the world around them, to see ideas as opportunities for reflection and imagination, and to leverage design and writing as expressions of newly curated perspectives. These ideas are grounded in a critical engagement with the history and theory of our discipline, and the future contingencies of contemporary culture. Through rigorous inquiry, we interrogate contemporary urban issues and propose possible futures with equal measures of expertise, optimism, and vision.

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design offers five graduate programs and an undergraduate program. We are located at Perloff Hall, on UCLA’s Westwood campus and a satellite facility – the IDEAS campus – near Culver City. The IDEAS campus is an incubator for cross-disciplinary design research and the exclusive home for our post-professional program. Students and faculty work with industry and nonprofit partners across entertainment, media, technology and urbanism to consider how emerging developments in these industries might impact the built environment. By engaging with experts from other fields, we have the opportunity to expand architecture’s field of influence and leverage design to propose alternative, more intelligent futures.

Through our public programs and events, there are many opportunities to engage with the creative community at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design. Visit to learn more.
