At Georgia Tech, inquisitiveness is an essential trait of the culture of design, and research is the fundamental activity by which we advance this aspiration. This is particularly true of our programs of study in the School of Architecture. Faculty pursue rigorous, creative programs of scholarship and research in architecture across the grain and between the cracks of the sciences and humanities, technologies and practices. This work inspires a deepened appreciation of our multiple contexts while setting the stage for progress both in the profession and in society at large. It is simply the driving force for all we do.
