Outcomes



The graduate of the Architecture Program will:

  • Identify urban, spatial, and tectonic conceptions that are characteristic of the Caribbean Region to challenge the cultural vantage points and boundaries from which the architectural discipline has been so far understood in Puerto Rico.
  • Articulate the limits and possibilities of the land and the regional landscape, as framed within society’s ecological obligations.
  • Assess technology as myth, discourse, resource and possibility, given the Caribbean’s perennial (and sometimes questionable) efforts to contemporize.
  • Illustrate the relevance, quality and dissemination of architectural research –formal, technical, historical, or cultural – as integral to professional practice.
  • Compare and contest the prevailing modes and metaphors of our age and culture, remaining critically sensitive to change, transformations and evolving trends and ideals.
  • Discuss past and prevailing architectural debates within the academy, the profession, and the community in general, engaging at the same time with other disciplines in the effort.
  • Generate designs that fulfill society’s expectations regarding health and safety-related priorities and responsibilities, but also cost-effective and esthetic concerns.
  • Contribute as a member in team and/or interdisciplinary efforts.
