The Tulane University School of Architecture is committed to pushing for excellence without reservation in the fields of Architecture, Preservation, and Sustainable Real Estate Development.

We are located in the heart of the Gulf Coast, where all the challenges of human inhabitation of the planet are at stake. Here, we have the opportunity to define the role of architecture in front of climate change, coastal and riparian crisis, the process of urbanization under these circumstances, and the challenges for social and environmental justice.

We believe this is a historic moment in the best possible place on earth to be an architect and an educator.

Research

Tulane University is the only top research university located in a region that deals with the most pressing social, environmental, economic challenges. Solving these urgent problems – housing people, working with communities to bring them back, developing new scenarios to inhabit our rivers and deltas – are deeply rooted in Tulane’s identity. Our university is committed to work that brings innovation by crossing disciplinary boundaries.

Tulane School of Architecture has a long history of commitment to addressing real issues and generating new knowledge, especially after Hurricane Katrina and our leadership in helping our communities rebuild. And as architects, educated to lead complex teams to deal with complex issues, our work is fundamentally interdisciplinary and inventive.

Research and innovation at Tulane School of Architecture is focused in two main areas: 1) Empowerment of Communities through Architecture and 2) River and Delta Urbanism, which are accomplished through professional design excellence and leadership in design education.

The school’s Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design and URBANbuild are two nationally and internationally recognized programs that provide students and faculty the opportunity to work on local community-based projects through internships, studio and class projects, and design-build opportunities. The Yamuna River Project is an interdisciplinary research program whose objective is to revitalize the ecology of the Yamuna River in New Delhi, thus reconnecting India’s capital city back to the water.
