At Utah, we immerse our students in the discipline and analytics of evidence based design while encouraging innovation through venturing
beyond boundaries, taking risks and aspiring to make beautiful things. The School of Architecture is housed in an award-winning mid-century
modern building influenced by Le Corbusier’s Maison Jaoul with its traces of craft, expression of materials and insistent presence on campus.
Much like the building, our students are serious and focused on learning the difficult practice and craft of architecture, yet each class
redefines themselves and in so doing the future of the profession.
The Department of City & Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah is a community of faculty and students dedicated to enhancing the health and vitality of towns, cities, and regions through place-based and integrated approaches to building in harmony with nature, placemaking, capacity-building, and quality growth.
This program brings the best from a multitude of areas such as Design, Engineering, Business, Psychology and Communications around the common framework of product design. It hopes to bring all the relevant perspectives together and instruct students on what is necessary and sufficient to create products that are desirable for people, feasible in their implementation and viable in the market place.
Professor Nan Ellin of the Department of City & Metropolitan Planning has been named as Leadership Fellow
in the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs for the 2014-2015 academic year.
