The Master of Architecture Program at CCA focuses on material innovation, research, application and resourcefulness within a larger social and cultural context. While providing a well-rounded architectural education, the program uses both physical and digital engagement with old, new, and emerging building materials and systems to explore architecture as a critical and evolving practice.
We believe that architects are cultural makers both leading and responding to cultural, social, economic and ecological issues. The goal of the program is to produce graduates who will continue on their paths as architects to produce theoretically engaged real-world work.
The class of 2007 demonstrates their potential as leaders as well as their individual interests through a two-semester course sequence in their third, and final, year of the program. Beginning with a research-oriented seminar in the fall, the students outlined a specific set of issues to pursue through design work in a spring studio. The resulting Thesis Projects are exhibited in the 2007 Graduate Show on the San Francisco campus. On this website, each student presents a selection of projects from their time in the program as well as initial Thesis Project work.
