The Los Angeles Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design immerses aspiring architects in a multicultural urban setting--rich with amazing learning, practicing, and networking opportunities. The program is designed to engage local architects, alumni, and the many institutions in Los Angeles to support student education and future career goals. In addition to our unique curriculum that will focus on Los Angeles -- its architecture, history, urbanity, and culture -- we will reach out to the local community to enhance our program's learning structure through visiting lecturers, digital design workshops, internships, and public events. The program is founded and directed by Stephen Phillips, AIA, Ph.D
