University
Setting

Carleton University's Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism is fortunate to be located in Ottawa, Canada's capital city. Because of this unique location, the School enjoys access to the research facilities and expertise of Canada's national libraries, museums, galleries, and government agencies. The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism has also established a close relationship with the city's computer and information technology sector.

School Philosophy

The practice of architecture demands a breadth of knowledge and range of skills unparalleled in other professions. The responsibility for teaching these lessons is shared between academia and the profession. In addition to the demands of practice, however, it is the responsibility of the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism to test the limits of architectural convention and discourse. This questioning, undertaken primarily in the design studio, is of particular relevance in the context of Canada's policy of cultural diversity.

School
Programs

The Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) is a four-year program that investigates architecture as a professional discipline, cultural phenomenon, and historical legacy. Students have the option to study in one of four concentrations - Design, Urbanism, Conservation & Sustainability, and Philosophy & Criticism. The Design Studio sequence undertakes architectural projects of increasing complexity from the carefully crafted and poetic investigations of form and material in the first year to a comprehensive design of a complex building in the fourth year. The concentration in Urbanism explores architecture as a component of the larger built environment. The curriculum is designed to raise awareness and promote stewardship of the built environment. Students enrolled in the Conservation & Sustainability concentration will partake in specialized courses in the conservation of historical architecture as well as courses and workshops in the principles of sustainable design of architecture and the urban fabric. The concentration in Philosophy & Criticism will consist of humanistic courses in the intellectual contexts of historical architecture, with particular emphasis on artistic and scientific theory in architectural theory since the Enlightenment. Courses are supplemented by electives and workshops offered by other departments in the University. In the Design concentration, the School offers a Directed Studies Abroad option in the second term of third year that allows students to study outside of Ottawa under the supervision of a faculty member. The School also offers a well-established Co-Op option.
