The College of Fine and Applied Arts prepares students for professional work in architecture, art and design, dance, landscape architecture, music, sustainable design, theatre, and urban and regional planning. First-year and transfer students may apply for admission. In each curriculum specific basic courses, professional courses, and general education requirements must be completed in order to qualify for the specific baccalaureate degree offered.
These awards are intended for a broad range of individuals who work on the conservation and historic preservation of works of art, manuscripts, or cultural properties (including architecture, engineering, planning and design, urban design, or landscape architecture), and those who work in the area of cultural policy. Applicants are encouraged to submit materials that best express the quality of what they do and how they think.
The Academy invites proposals in archaeology, classics, history, the history of art and architecture, economic and political policy, literature, musicology, theory, and other relevant fields. Please note that these categories are not intended to be exclusive. Any approach or combination of approaches to these disciplines will be given consideration. We welcome interdisciplinary work on historic and contemporary issues across the humanities including one or more of the chronological periods listed above. Cross-cultural projects that share Rome and its influences are also welcome.
We performed exceptionally well in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. Across all of our submissions, 100 per cent of our research environment profile ratings were either 4* world leading or 3* internationally excellent. In art and design: history, practice and theory, we were ranked seventh in theUK for research power (Research Fortnight REF 2014). In music, drama, dance and performing arts we were ranked in the UK top 20 for both research quality and research power (Research Fortnight REF 2014). In our joint submission with Heriot-Watt University for architecture, built environment and planning 73 per cent of our research was ranked 4* world leading or 3* internationally excellent on the overall quality profile.
As a Research Fellow for the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Etienne's research considers the consequences of climate change on urban settlements and develops potential design responses. Dr. Turpin is Principal Investigator, with Assistant Professor Meredith Miller, of the Architecture + Adaptation: Designing for Hypercomplexity research initiative, which explores architecture's potential response to inundation in Southeast Asian megacities. In the spring of 2012, Dr. Turpin and Professor Miller led the INDUNDATION Bangkok/Jakarta research studio for Taubman College, with the generous support of CSEAS and the International Institute. The initial phase of research will be published as Architecture + Adaptation: Jakarta (forthcoming from Universitas Indonesia Press, 2013).
Etienne is also a lecturer in architecture at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Design, University of Michigan, where his current research focuses on the turn to the Anthropocene within geological discourse and its potential effect on architecture and design; this research is part of a longer study of the relations among architecture, philosophy, and geology, entitled Terrible is the Earth. This research also informs his hyperstitial study of misery and cumulus landscape aesthetics as they are explored in the theoretical-fiction manuscript North of Architecture, currently in preparation with Lisa Hirmer.
As the Taubman College 2011-2012 Walter B. Sanders Fellow, Etienne curated The Geologic Turn: Architecture's New Alliance. Etienne is currently editing the proceedings of the symposium, as well as a number of additional essays, interviews, and design projects, for the book Architecture in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Design, Deep Time, Science and Philosophy (forthcoming from MAP Office/MAP Books Publishers, 2013). During the Sanders Fellowship, Etienne also developed research from the Bentley Historical Library's Albert Kahn Papers and the Hatcher Graduate Library's Joseph A. Labadie Collection for his contribution to the 2012 Fellows exhibition, Stainlessness. The exhibition materials and associated publication consider the iconography of steel in North American architecture, urbanism, and consumerism at the end of the 19th Century, focusing on sites of extraction (Sudbury Basin), production (Pittsburgh), extrusion (Chicago), and circulation (Detroit) that constitute the relays of mineralization in the Anthropocene.
Etienne Turpin completed his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, where his doctoral dissertation analyzed Georges Bataille's concept of expenditure in relation to post-Kantian aesthetic commitments, as advanced by the American artist Robert Smithson. Prior to his doctoral research, he completed an M.A. (Philosophy) at the Universit? d'Ottawa and a Bachelor of Humanities at the College of the Humanities, Ottawa, Canada. In addition to philosophy, his teaching and research areas include architecture theory, design research, political economies of land use and resource extraction, aesthetics, modern and contemporary art, contemporary philosophy and philosophy of nature, and post-industrial environments of desolation. Prior to his position as the 2011-2012 Walter B. Sanders Research Fellow at Taubman College, he taught in the graduate programs for Architecture and Landscape Architecture in the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto, as well as Art History and Visual Culture in the Department of Visual Studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
Etienne is also founding editor of the architecture, landscape, and political economy journal Scapegoat; he is a sustainability research expert for the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute; and, his research, writing, and other public projects are collected online.
Two UNLV scholars and artists are collaborating on this project: Julian Kilker, who specializes in visual and emerging technology research, and Tom Bjelic, who is a highly experienced sound design and field recording expert. Over the past decade, Tom has collaborated with audio field recordists around the globe to capture and produce soundscapes for narrative film and television, while Julian has documented light pollution while capturing landscapes in the Mojave at night and collaborated on multiple environmental conservation media projects.
Nature-based solutions are being further appreciated beyond their aesthetics and are being recognized for their ability to sustain, mitigate, and service the sensible ecological preservation and enhancement of the natural and built environments (Beck, 2015). For the profession of landscape architecture to properly evaluate these necessary design tactics, our process must shift to a divergent method of asking questions to direct solutions through evidence-based decision-making (Lahaie, 2016).
These studies span research and creative work to interrogate the generative capacity of text-to-image diffusion models that leverage artificial intelligence to produce architectural concepts, ideas, and imagery. These systems can generate an enormous amount of imagery in a very short amount of time based entirely from the written word, and we are still just beginning to understand how these digital tools might augment and/or disrupt, both, the design process, and design pedagogy within the discipline of architecture.
The second degree program leads to a degree in one of the following professional areas: architecture, landscape architecture and interior architecture. This track is a two-year program, offered in conjunction with Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning and Design.
UMKC is an urban university, and architecture, urban planning and design is consistent with our vision for our community and region. Kansas City is a great urban laboratory. Few American cities have the planning and design tradition of Kansas City. We think this sets us apart, and places the students within a professional community with unmatched resources, whether one is studying architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture or urban planning and design.
And it made an insomniac of UC Davis landscape architecture professor Mark Francis, because the Gold Rush Park Foundation Board asked him and his undergraduate students to translate the board's vision into a coherent design.
