Description

Mission


We explore, develop, practice, and teach design of the land that is ecologically and socially sustainable.

In the process we:

  • Provide graduates with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to practice the planning, design, and management of the land that respects nature as well as humanity;
  • Develop ecological awareness, understanding, respect, and accommodation in our students and project clients;
  • Produce projects that fit human use to natural conditions.


The Conway Curriculum


Students learn from faculty, from each other, from guest professionals in many fields, and from their explorations of their project sites and the communities where those projects are embedded. The environment is personal, collaborative, and rigorous—learning is driven by motivated students working for real communities to solve real and pressing problems.

The Conway program is built around those real projects for real clients. The projects raise issues, questions, and challenges—from technical questions about site engineering, to ethical issues about community involvement or wise use of resources, to practical questions about how resilience can be built into systems in the face of uncertain futures—that drive the classes, discussions, and field and studio work that make up the rest of the fully integrated, multidisciplinary program. Class assignments—graphic, technical, and written—support project work.
