College of Architecture and Design

Architecture and Design at Lawrence Tech

The College of Architecture and Design is dedicated to a pedagogy of “theory and practice”, the original motto of Lawrence Technological University. We advocate not one or the other, but both, integrated and coherent. Correspondingly, CoAD offers students insight into grounded design practice, crafted so that our students might enter thoughtfully into current modes of practice and, when appropriate, expand the conversations so that the practices of architecture and design might be more innovative, inclusive, and democratic. We endorse the idea of expanded practice, a “multi-disciplinary” approach to design that includes community-based activities as well as an emphasis upon immersive international experiences. And we promote the notion of advancing practice, design practice and ideas that enable us, as a culture, to make lives better. At the College of Architecture and Design, this idea has reinforced our conviction that technology is a human endeavor and a reflection of people at their best.
