The Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a degree-granting institution founded in 1906 as one of five divisions of Carnegie Mellon University's College of Fine Arts. It is widely regarded as one of the best schools of architecture, and one of a shrinking number offering an accredited five year professional degree. The School of Architecture's main office and main studio space are located on the second floor of the College of Fine Arts building, designed by Henry Hornbostel and located axially along a green lawn known as "the Cut". Academically the undergraduate degree program is divided into two studios per year for five years totalling ten studio classes, terminating in a thesis studio. The current Head of the School of Architecture is Stephen Lee.
The School of Architecture's facilities are located on the second floor of the College of Fine Arts building and the second, third, and fourth floors of Margaret Morrison Carnegie Hall. These two buildings house Undergraduate and Master studios, PhD, administrative, and faculty offices, and several conference spaces as well as the Computational Design (CODE) Lab, a full Wood & Metal Shop, a (Digital Fabrication) dFAB Lab, and the Robert L. Preger Intelligent Workplace, a sustainable "living laboratory" built atop Margaret Morrison Carnegie Hall.
The School of Architecture offers a five-year undergraduate degree, as well as seven Master's programs and three Doctorate programs.
