Designing a Better World

The School of Architecture and Planning at The Catholic University of America is educating and inspiring a new generation of architects and planners to design and build a better world. Here in our ideal location in the heart of Washington, D.C., you will find the soul of architecture.

We embrace a philosophy devoted to the integration of artistic creativity, intellectual curiosity, and technical acuity. In doing so, we aim to cultivate a holistic view of architecture and design so that students, future architects, and planners can assume a personal responsibility for the welfare of the world and forge compelling contemporary attitudes toward “Building Stewardship” for the society at large.
