Wonder makes us


Time to rethink, redefine – restruct our built environment.

The University of Arizona will be the first to develop a robust university-wide ecosystem supporting research, teaching and service for the built environment, defining a new fully integrated discipline leveraging knowledge and research from all colleges.

This capacity development effort is built upon existing UA strengths such as public policy, environmental sciences, transportation, optical sciences, management, planning, data sciences, public health, geography, and materials. The research foci, continuously determined through workshops and discussions with faculty across the campus as well as outside experts, may include livable cities, the trillion sensor future, crisis response, technology and emerging design processes, health and wellbeing, decision policy, socio-environmental justice, and built environment lifecycles.
