Tuskegee University and Asian Universities Partner on Environmentally Responsive Architecture

The Robert R. Taylor School of Architecture and Construction Science at historically Black Tuskegee University in Alabama has expanded an academic partnership with Kagoshima University in Japan and Diponegoro University in Indonesia. The three schools will collaborate to launch an online pilot course focused on environmentally responsive architecture and design.

The pilot online course, which builds on design workshops between Kagoshima and Tuskegee held in Japan in 2013 and 2015, will focus on environmentally responsive architecture and design, as well as the potential for offering innovative solutions to developmental issues in each campus location. Through the course, students from each institution will interact online with their global counterparts, as well as travel periodically to the other campuses to participate in design charrettes.

The course is scheduled to run through 2023.
