the interplay of art and science is at the very heart of our institution ASchoolofArchitecturedesignearnedaplaceofhonorattheannualconferenceoftheAssociationforComputer AidedDesigninArchitectureheldinBanffCanada.ThedesignoftheLuminescentLimaonlightfixturewhich takesitsformfromamathequationanditssubtleglowfromaBaroquepaintingtechniqueearnedoneofthree prizesintheACADIA2011DesignFabricationCompetition. Once you start thinking about that interplay you realize that its everywhere. We listen to music on our phones. We experience great literature on our electronic readers. The Mona Lisa turns up as our screensaver. As an SoA student you will work in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment that brings together architecture engineering and science. Our graduates emerge with awakened minds that are able to confront great new challenges in bold and original ways. The School of Architecture has developed a number of recent initiatives designed to capitalize on the energy that is generated when art meets science. These initiatives include our Design Development course and the Bedford Seminar.
