Build Culture

Though the College of Architecture is a leader in the application of technology to the design process, students also focus on the more tactile aspects of design and construction, from model building to the construction of large scale prototype designs, like the solar home designed and constructed by students for the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon. The college's woodshop in the Langford B building and its Digital Fabrication Facility at Texas A&M's Riverside Campus provide students with the tools and machinery needed to realize the structures they imagine. Additionally, the college's numerous industry partners facilitate student field trips to construction sites around Texas, providing a first-hand look at construction industry practices.
