Department of Architecture - MIT

From their site:

At MIT, processes and acts of design, research, testing, and experimentation are intertwined and grounded in critical contemporary questions which require deep knowledge of the past and present as well as insights into the future. We enable and open up our students’ understanding of the built environment as a cultural, technological, social, and ecological condition - one in which design is as critically focused on asking questions as it is about solving problems through intervening in the world.

Offering undergraduate, professional, post-professional, and doctoral degree programs across five discipline groups, the department provides an energetic and rich site to study the field. This organization presents intensive research on the one hand, and possibilities for integration on the other. It allows the undergraduate and masters students to learn alongside advanced degree and doctoral students, bringing a plurality of views and interests to the fore and fostering a culture of intense and productive debate.
