Start Your Journey in Architecture
The School of Architecture recognizes design as a synthesis of thinking, analyzing, and making — an iterative process that engages issues of space, historical precedent, sustainability, ecology, urbanity, landscape, built-form, and construction toward innovation.
Due to current admission examination testing difficulties amid the COVID-19 pandemic our School of Architecture, in sync with the UF Graduate School, is waiving GER requirement for applicants seeking Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Summer A/B/C 2021, or Fall 2021 admission. This temporary emergency waiver applies only to admission for those four semesters.
School of Architecture
Design studio is the core pedagogical modality of the UF School of Architecture program. Studio is a positive collaborative context enabling the process of architectural design in all its aspects, and fosters speculation, critique, analysis, and most importantly, self-directed modes of inquiry and synthetic responses. The School of Architecture emphasizes a strong focus on studio culture through scholarly rigor, expectation for excellence, coordinated support courses, engagement of national and international experts, and appropriate facilities and supplies.

Joe Walker, B.Des ’96, M.Arch ‘98
After my years as a runner and intern during school, I worked with Siebein Associates as an acoustic consultant. I helped grow another local firm before starting my own shop in 2010.
The core group at Walker Architects has built a collaborative and creative team that knows how to listen and doesn’t let ego get in the way. We design for our clients, not for awards. We bring sophistication and rampant curiosity to every project and often deliver unexpected solutions to problems a client isn’t even aware they had.
