University of Miami, Coral Gables, FL, US, BArch, Architecture

Faculty and students draw upon the body of knowledge of architecture through exploration of the history of the profession: from traditional building methods, materials, form, and organization, to the nature and context of current practice. Students are introduced to the present-day profession within the context of a 5,000 year legacy of building, and are to call upon that history for practical application. Faculty and students study the legacy of building and seek new discoveries in the work of the past by documenting current-day buildings and landscapes.
