The UTS School of Architecture is a laboratory for the future of architecture and landscape architecture. We are committed to teaching, learning and research that improves our cities’ diverse environments through critical and creative spatial thinking.
We engage with emerging practices across the spectrum of architecture from professional practice to design technologies. Our focus is international, and we join with industry and institutional thought leaders who believe in research and education focused on an expanded practice of architecture and architectural design.
