Graduate Architecture

Graduating students talk about their PennDesign experience.

With approximately 310 graduate students, the Graduate Architecture Department is housed at Meyerson Hall, in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania campus, at the corner of Walnut Street and 34th Street. In addition to design studios, exhibition spaces, classrooms, and offices, this facility includes state-of-the-art laboratories for computing and fabrication and two advanced research labs: the Digital Design Research Lab and the Building Simulation Group. Penndesign also introduced 3-D printers in the newly renovated studio spaces.

The professional program in Architecture offers a number of study abroad options, currently including a semester abroad in London as well as summer abroad programs in Paris, Colombia and Athens, Greece. It enjoys collaborative relationships with other disciplines of the School of Design - historic preservation, landscape architecture, city planning and fine arts and offers dual degrees and certificates in many of these allied fields. Students are eligible for a range of scholarships, including travel scholarships.
