School of Architecture

The School of Architecture, which is part of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, offers both undergraduate and graduate courses that are NAAB-accredited. It is dedicated to advancing the art and practice of architecture by offering academic programs that foster critical thinking, artistic vision, and responsible leadership.

Offered as a first professional degree, the Bachelor of Architecture program provides an intense design education by developing each student’s capacity to synthesize critical thought, artistic vision, and responsible leadership.

The NAAB accredited Master of Architecture is a holistic professional program offered in two tracks. Dedicated to the relationship of theory, up to date technical developments, advanced architectural design and the practice of making and building, the program has an exceptional profile. Through knowledgeable and practicing faculty, we enable our students to become responsible leaders in their field, who have the skills to envision, design and construct a desirable and viable future, and therefore actively contribute towards the evolution of society.

Peter has been teaching the second year studio on-site as well as the online master’s program at the School of Architecture and encourages a concept driven and experimental approach that is based on a thorough research and analysis of all project parameters. One of his main teaching objectives is to encourage a critical approach that is based on a thorough research and analysis in order to enable his students to be able to envision responses for some of the current design challenges of our society and environment, and to help the students develop their own creative approach and voice.
