Columbia University students on top of a cliff featuring art display for core project

 

Overview

The master program offered by The Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation weaves together “the highest level of disciplinary expertise with the critical and technical skills necessary to recast the boundaries of the discipline.” Fundamentals in this professional program focus on analytical thinking in concert with progressive visualization, representation and a culture of making.

Studios and seminars push boundaries with innovations in housing, infrastructure, urban ecology and preservation, all with an eye to sustainability, social equity and evolving technologies. Students are also undeniably influenced by its world-class setting. Located on Columbia’s Morningside campus, the school incorporates an array of academic research centers, experimental labs and initiatives, including the Avery Library (a top collection of architecture books, archives and drawings), the Fabrication Lab and the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, plus the GSAPP Incubator (downtown at the New Museum). Learning is also done remotely via extensive travel opportunities, studio trips and the Studio-X Global Network (in Amman, Beijing, Johannesburg and other cities).
