100 Years of Architecture at USC

2014 marks the exciting milestone of educating the 100th class of students at USC Architecture. These 100 classes have produced more than 5,000 alumni who are advancing modernism, prefabrication, sustainability and urban design. 

 

The students in these 100 classes have been mentored by faculty members who are leaders in modern architectural design, construction and conservation excellence, and who have developed a multidisciplinary perspective on the design of projects in urban settings.

 

USC Architecture is proud to have been the first accredited architecture school in Southern California, and the first in the west to teach a curriculum focusing on modernism, highlighted by a faculty supporting the Case Study House Program through teaching, research and practice.

 

To commemorate the centennial, 2014 will be marked by several once-in-a-century events, including a lecture series, special scholarship announcements and the launch of a fundraising campaign.

 

USC Architecture is known for real-time design, focused on the now. Our centennial is another opportunity to move from thinking to building, from students to leaders and from Los Angeles to the world.

 

These concepts will guide us as we begin our next 100 years.
