International Research Studios

The School of Architecture is committed to continuing to expand its global networks, through faculty research, Study Abroad Programs, international visiting scholars and designers, and its advanced research studios. The study and practice of architecture is becoming increasingly global. The School of Architecture at UVA believes that the future of its students will be found in all corners of the world, and therefore places value on providing varied and impactful international experiences for its students.
