Study architecture and built environment

Study AUT’s architecture and built environment programmes 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's School of Future Environments - the home of our architecture and built environment programmes - is a new associate member of the US-based Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and Association of Australasian Schools of Architecture (AASA).
