Introduction

We are a community of innovators committed to changing the world through thoughtful architecture, planning, and design.

Our Dean is Frederick R. Steiner, a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects [ASLA]. Dean Steiner received his Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in city and regional planning and a Master of Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. He earned a Master of Community Planning and a B.S. in Design from the University of Cincinnati. Dean Steiner was also awarded an honorary M.Phil. in Human Ecology from the College of the Atlantic.

UTSOA has over 700 graduate and undergraduate students; 68 full-time faculty members renowned for their scholarship, research, and practice; and a group of dedicated staff who specialize in information technology, communications, financial analysis, course scheduling and advising, event planning, scholarship and endowment compliance, career guidance and job placement, development, and alumni relations.

Our student/faculty ratio is 13:1. In 2012, UTSOA’s undergraduate Architecture Program was ranked second in the nation according to DesignIntelligence. Our graduate Architecture Program was eleventh, and our Community and Regional Planning Program was fifteenth.

In 2013, DesignIntelligence ranked our undergraduate Architecture Program sixth; our graduate Architecture Program eleventh; our undergraduate Interior Design Program sixth; and our graduate Landscape Architecture Program thirteenth. In the Dean’s Survey, our aforementioned undergraduate Interior Design Program was ranked fourth “for excellent faculty, resources, and studio culture.”

Additionally, UTSOA Assistant Professor Hope Hasbrouck and Distinguished Teaching Professor Lawrence Speck were also recognized as being among DesignIntelligence’s “25 Most Admired Educators of 2012.” Associate Professor Allan Shearer was named one of the “30 Most Admired Educators” for 2013.

These rankings were updated in 2014, with UTSOA again placing in the top 10 for both our undergraduate [#4] and graduate [#10] Architecture Programs. UTSOA was the only public university to achieve this feat. Also of note: Assistant Professor Cisco Gomes was listed as one of 2014's "30 Most Admired Educators" in the country.

The school is located within the historical core of The University of Texas at Austin campus. We celebrated our centennial in 2010. As part of the 40 Acres, we occupy four buildings: Goldsmith Hall, Sutton Hall, Battle Hall, and the West Mall Office Building. Two of these buildings were were designed by Cass Gilbert and another by Paul Cret.

Cret was instrumental in the design for the campus master plan for The University of Texas at Austin. He served as consulting architect, with Herbert M. Greene [of Texas firm Greene, LaRoche, and Dahl] as associate architect. UT alumnus Robert Leon White was supervising architect for the project.

UTSOA proudly houses:

Our Austin Historical Survey Wiki is a partnership with The University of Texas at Austin School of Information, the City of Austin, and the Heritage Society of Austin. The wiki enables visitors to search for and contribute information about historic buildings, sites, and landscapes as part of a collaborative effort to share Austin’s history with others.

We also host our annual Summer Academy in Architecture, a community outreach program that introduces students of all ages [and all skill levels] to our field as a possible career. Summer Academy has an average student-to-teacher ratio of 10:1. The program helps students develop drawing and model-building skills; one assignment even includes constructing a sturdy cardboard bridge that is able to support the average human’s weight without adhesive.

Additionally, UTSOA is partnered with the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s Sustainable SITES Initiative, which aims to use water management, biodiversity protection, and pollution reduction techniques based on green building standards set by the aforementioned City of Austin and the U.S. Green Building Council [USGBC]. SITES works to transform land development, site components, and management practices with a national rating system for sustainable landscapes.

UTSOA strives to be a leader for the future of the built environment. For more information, or to reach the school, please call us directly at: +1.512.471.1922.
