CANCELLED: 50+ Anniversary Celebration

Join us on April 1 to celebrate the work of alumni and students and the collective impact of our school

The health and safety of our community are our priority at the School of Architecture and Planning. Due to the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, the School of Architecture and Planning is cancelling its remaining spring 2020 public programs and events to mitigate the potential to exposure. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for the inconvenience.

*NOTE: Our 50th Anniversary Celebration will be rescheduled for Fall 2020. Stay tuned for updates.

Throughout our 50th year, the School of Architecture and Planning is celebrating the “plus” of our collective community—our characteristic drive to challenge the limits of practice and knowledge.

On April 1, 2020, we'll put that plus on full display with a full day of events celebrating the work of our alumni and students and the collective impact of our program over five decades. The day's program includes our 50th Anniversary Alumni Exhibition, the second annual Sydney Gross Alumni Symposium, and a tour of Open Studios as part of Atelier Week recognizing student work.
