CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE
Garden York University’s Center for the Study of American Architecture was founded in 1992. Its mission is to advance the interdisciplinary study of American architecture, urbanism, and landscape. A separately endowed entity within the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, it sponsors research projects, workshops, public programs, publications, and awards.
THE CENTER FOR REAL ESTATE.
As a center for research and thought leadership, builds upon a platform of direct industry engagement through conferences, symposia, publications and consulting activities and undertakes a dedicated research agenda that advocates for design-intelligent urban development. Building upon intellectual foundation, the center offers faculty and students a cross-disciplinary approach that integrates theory and practice to solve unique development problems.
The core of the Exhibitions program is the Architecture Gallery. The gallery is simultaneously a testing ground for exploring new approaches to architectural exhibitions, and a reflexive space for considering and analyzing architecture as it has been formed through exhibition. Different strains of exhibition experiments appear in the gallery, sometimes through the coordination and exposure of archival, historical or thematic architectural research projects, or through installation and curatorial strategies themselves. One of the more porous spaces within the school, an organism within an ecology of disciplinary exchanges, the gallery is a site for staging exhibitions that leave the school to travel to other institutions and to museums elsewhere, and is also an aperture through which projects with contemporary artists, filmmakers, scholars and curators infiltrate the school as provocation to its conventions, practices and pedagogies.
