Since its establishment in 1971, the Architecture Program has developed a distinctive history based on its location in southern Alberta, the accomplishments of its graduates, and an ambitious group of educators. In addition to teaching, the faculty are involved in a diverse range of professional practice and research. The Program also draws on the expertise of the professional community as adjunct professors and sessional instructors. It benefits greatly from a healthy cooperative relationship with the Alberta Association of Architects. Supported by excellent facilities, the Architecture Program is able to maintain an intimate and supportive learning environment. The success of the Program can be measured by the accomplishments of its graduates in the profession, and in other related careers. The Architecture Program enjoys strong support within the interdisciplinary Faculty of Environmental Design and the University of Calgary, and has been widely recognized for the recent achievements of faculty, students and alumni. The Program offers a broad range of enrichment opportunities including the Barcelona Study Abroad program, the William Lyon Somerville Visiting Lectureship, the Gillmor Theory Seminar, lecture series, field trips, student exchanges, and exhibitions. The ability of our students to take full advantage of the many opportunities provided in the Program has been greatly enhanced by the wide range of scholarships, bursaries and awards available to students through the Faculty, the University of Calgary, and beyond.
