Langford A

Home of the School of Architecture

Langford A is home to essential school services including the dean’s office, student services, and the departments of architecture and landscape architecture and urban planning. Buzzing with activity year-round, the building is a home away from home for many students who stay late to work on projects. 

Additionally, Langford A houses the MakerPlace, Wright Gallery and Azimuth Café.
