Map & Directions
In some cases, where students learn can be as important as what they learn. Where it can be a modern urban center or a historic city like Florence, or it can be a building so innovative in its design that it becomes a partner in the educational experience. Such is the case with Marywood’s Center for Architectural Studies, which houses the School of Architecture.
The School of Architecture is a state-of-the-art example of sustainable design. It's a spacious, adaptive re-use of Marywood's former gymnasium and natatorium. It features:
- Two levels of open studios
- Wood and metal shops
- Digital Fabrication Lab
- Plaster-casting room
- Printers and plotters
- Computer-Aided Design (CAD) lab
- Reference library
A two-story commons under a continuous skylight harvests abundant natural light throughout the day and serves as the building's "agora" - an open, shared, central space for educational exchanges among students and faculty. This is an ideal place for group discussions, debates, displays, and project critiques.
Every student is provided an individual work space with a drawing board, personal storage area, pin-up wall, and space for a laptop.
