LSU CoAD in PARIS PROGRAM

DESIGN IN THE CITY OF LIGHTS

The city of Paris offers a richly layered framework from which to engage questions critical to design explorations. The city is a compendium of many centuries of endeavors to construct the built environment around a constantly changing context. With many cultural resources, Paris represents a unique urban classroom in which to be immersed. As a living classroom, Paris has the capacity to challenge the preconceptions of space making practices and expand the notion of human experience in the urban context.

The School of Architecture and the College of Art and Design are pleased to announce the Fall Semester LSU Paris Program. During Fall 2018, we will offer a sixteen-week,
12 credit hour design curriculum taught by LSU and CEA Paris Program Faculty. The coursework will enable students to engage in the built environment of Paris, testing observations through design work. All field studies, course travel and housing will be coordinated through the administrative staff at the CEA Paris Center.

The LSU Paris Program will supply students with a rigorous academic environment that combines field studies, studio design work, and seminars, all based in Paris with supplemental day trips into the surrounding region. Students will also have the option to expand their travel in Europe during 3-day weekends.
