GRADUATE ARCHITECTURE & URBAN DESIGN

The Graduate Architecture & Urban Design (GAUD) department at Pratt provides a progressive design environment for advanced architectural research. GAUD proposes speculative debate and experimental architectural production based on a relational construct among theoretical inquiry, computation research, digital design, and technological innovation. To this end, GAUD seeks to formulate a contemporary approach to architecture that is “ecological,” in the sense that it provides collective exchanges, which are both trans-disciplinary and trans-categorical. This ecological approach encourages feedback relationships among architecture, landscape, urbanism, technology, software programming, industry, manufacturing, political agencies, theoretical studies, as well as categories and disciplines that are newly emerging in contemporary culture. This approach seeks to productively intensify heterogeneous interests and agencies.
