The Stuckeman School


Faculty and students in Penn State's School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture are just beginning to see the benefits of their mutual academic home: the Stuckeman Family Building.

The building was designed to foster integration and collaboration, and faculty and administrators have fully embraced the concept. Instead of housing departments on separate floors or wings, classrooms and offices are deliberately adjacent to each other. Studios invite onlookers so students and faculty members from different disciplines can appreciate each other’s work and ideas. Colleagues from the two departments are increasingly seeking funding for collaborative research projects. Joint curricular options are being considered for future students.
