Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Science, Engineering, and Architecture
Field of Study:Architectural and Building Sciences/Technology
Description:Architecture is essential to the overall design of the built environment and the study of architecture raises awareness of the holistic and aesthetic nature of design culture. Laurentian’s new School of Architecture (LAL), located at the crossroads of the city of Sudbury in the downtown core, was launched in 2013. Faculty, staff, and students have come to work and study at the School of Architecture from all across Canada and abroad.

True to our tri-cultural vision of educating Francophone, Anglophone and FNMI students in a culturally diverse setting, architecture students take electives on the main LU campus, while design studio and other mandatory architecture courses are held in the downtown at the newly renovated LAL site. The Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) undergraduate program focuses on design, culture, technology and professional practice. Our architecture program highlights design and culture for the North – particularly northern Ontario – with an emphasis in developing expertise in wood. Design Studio courses challenge students’ creativity through the application of practical building solutions for our northern climate, taking into account cultural sensitivities, diverse histories and community profiles.
