Undergraduate Architecture Association

The Boston University Undergraduate Architecture Association works to support students in furthering their interest of architectural and design topics. UAA promotes an atmosphere of both conceptual discussion and hands on experience. It is a resource to students looking to converse about a unique subject as well as to those considering the professional practices of Architecture, Urban Design & Planning, and Preservation, among other fields. The Association sponsors professional panels, portfolio development workshops, site visits, lectures, graduate program visits, and more throughout the academic year. Events in recent years have included a visit to the Walter Gropius House, the MIT School of Architecture + Planning, and a panel featuring professionals from MASS Design Group and Pinkcomma Gallery.
