UCLA Architecture and Urban Design

“Los Angeles is a prototype of the 21st century city embodying the cultural, social, economic, and political issues central to the future of architecture and urbanism. UCLA Architecture and Urban Design is at the forefront of a new kind of city with an intense diversity of culture, the continuing influence of Asia, and a creative milieu influenced by both high technology and entertainment media. We attract designers and thinkers from around the world who come to share their work and ideas through lectures, exhibitions, and teaching. Our city provides a fertile opportunity for cross-industry research and collaboration.”—Hitoshi Abe, Chair
