Architecture

Study architecture with us and learn to design built environments that recognise indigenous values and address Auckland's rapid population growth, as well as global issues like housing affordability, global warming and homelessness.

AUT has a long tradition of offering programmes focused on the built environment, and we've recently added architecture to our suite of programmes.

Research in architecture

AUT researchers work on projects across the built environment, in New Zealand and around the world.

Our Future Environments Research Network (FERN) is a great place to collaborate on projects, and work with graduates and architects to create meaningful change in the built environment.
