ArchRecord: Univ. Humanitarian Design Programs

There are estimated to be over 100 community design programs in universities across the country, a great many of which maintain active design/build components or full-blown community design centers. The fourth of seven sections of “The Good List,” published by Architectural Record, profiles a few standout programs. Each is recognized nationally and distinguished for their commitment to good design and unique models of community engagement.

University-based programs profiled include the Portland State University / University of Texas at Austin Building Sustainable Communities (BaSiC) Initiative, The Building Project at Yale University, The Carl Small Town Center at Mississippi State University, the Detroit Collaborative Design Center at the University of Detroit-Mercy, the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio (GCCDS) also at Mississippi State University, The Rural Studio at Auburn University, Studio 804 at the University of Kansas, the Tulane City Center at Tulane University, and the University of Arkansas Community Design Center.
