Statement of Research Goals
Iowa State University Department of Architecture – Graduate Program
Our mission as a land grant university informs and inspires our individual and collective quests for knowledge. We pursue varied interests ranging from urban theory to historic religious architecture, but this wide array of individual pursuits shares a common interest in connecting scholarly work with the broader world. That connection can take the form of deep inquiry into why and how our built environment has developed in the ways it has, and of speculation as to how practitioners and scholars can leverage their knowledge into improving conditions in our cities, ruralscapes, and buildings.
