Our Mission

The global flows of rapid economic exchange and development came to San Diego with a heavy cost, creating ecologically unsustainable and socially isolated neighborhoods (“non-places”), often built in a historical and geographical vacuum. We believe the mission of our architecture program, embedded in a liberal arts college, is first and foremost educating the next generation of designers and the public alike in the values that, for generations, have made spaces into meaningful places.
