ARC in Motion

CONNECTIONS. On March 29, the departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture organized 2018 ARC/LA Firm Day, connecting regional design and engineering firms, nonprofits, and the public sector with students for portfolio reviews, and job and internship opportunities. More than a 100 organizations and 215 students attended the event. (Music: "Belview," C.Scott)

The undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Department of Architecture emphasize and exemplify Cal Poly Pomona’s commitment to sustainable practices. Students in our nationally ranked programs don’t just learn theory – they have an edge in the labor market for having experienced a hands-on approach to solving real-world problems. We embrace diversity as a core value, reflecting intellectual and cultural connections that bind the 21st century community. The department is a pioneer in providing specializations, such as the West Coast’s first Healthcare Architecture Initiative, Historic Preservation and Sustainability degree concentrations.

Spring Interim 2018

BEST OF THE BEST. At the start of every quarter, the student chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) hosts the Interim Student Exhibit at the Interim Design Center.

Works on display, considered the best of the best from the preceding term, were hand-picked by architecture faculty. The event typically draws 200 to 250 students, faculty, alumni and principals from regional architecture firms to view about 80 undergraduate and graduate student projects.
