Take your passion for design and urban environments to the next level in UBC’s Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urbanism program. Through small studios and intimate seminars, you’ll learn how design impacts society and the environment, and how the shaping of space can effect cultural change.
The Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism program explores the connectedness of design across multiple scales – from the body to the city. The program revolves around a core design studio sequence that begins with foundational skills and culminates in the design of complex spaces. You’ll build a strong foundation in critical thinking and the practical skills necessary to create environments that are socially and ecologically sustainable. Additional courses in history, theory, media, technology, and professional practice contribute to a holistic design curriculum.
Experiential learning and research
Build a deep disciplinary foundation and develop essential skills through hands-on practical experience, collaborative work projects, and interdisciplinary learning opportunities that integrate architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. You’ll have the opportunity to enrol in a design-build elective where you’ll tackle real-world problems, exploring and testing solutions and then executing them. Students in the environmental design program can participate in a mentorship program, lectures, studio reviews, and an annual exhibition of graduating student work.
