Architecture students are engaged in the design-build of a carbon-neutral facility that will be the first of its kind in the nation.
A group of senior architecture students immersed themselves in San Francisco neighborhoods and created a sustainable architectural solution.
High-level audiences in the nation’s capitol are taking in the creative work of University of Idaho art and architecture students.

The Studio Culture
Hands-on Learning in its Purest Form
Studios allow you to apply your newfound knowledge and skills in a more realistic professional setting. You’ll work independently and as part of a team, with personal instruction from faculty, to design concepts for hypothetical and actual client projects.
In the studio, you will:
- Develop critical thinking skills.
- Explore complex design problems.
- Solve problems.
- Communicate concepts and design ideas through the use of sketches, drawings, models, renderings, animations, virtual environments and verbal presentations.
- Develop teamwork skills.
An Exchange of Ideas
The studio culture encourages an “exchange of ideas” between faculty and students from all art and design disciplines. You’ll participate in student critiques and engage in thoughtful discussions about art and design. You’ll learn to not only work with others in various disciplines, but also to learn from others.
This free exchange of ideas adds an important dimension to your art and design work. Students gain a more complete understanding of the design process, as well as the ability to view art and design from various perspectives. You’ll also develop important communication and teamwork skills that will prove valuable throughout your career.
