100 years of architectural education at KU

The excellence of the KU Architecture Program and its students and alumni derives, in large measure, from the excellence of its faculty. Since Goldwin Goldsmith started building a program and a faculty a hundred years ago, this faculty has been characterized by a living connection to the most important and respected intellectual trends and movements in architectural education, by a cosmopolitanism that includes professional experiences in architecturally important centers of activity, by personal contacts and experiences with some of the leading and legendary members of the field, by a diversity of training and experience that is international in scope and attitude, by an affinity for rational and scientific approaches to architectural design and an openness to experimentation, and finally, by an aesthetic sensibility that is at once historically cultivated and socially humane. In this next decade that will lead to our Centennial in 2013, we share a unique and remarkable heritage—the historical momentum of excellence in architectural education.
