Calgary is Canada’s most enterprising city. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in Canada; rapidly emerging, nationally and internationally, as an influential political, financial, and cultural centre. With a young, multinational, professional, and highly-educated population, Calgary is a living laboratory for exploring innovation in architecture, landscape architecture, and planning within the context of unprecedented natural landscapes.
Our faculty members represent a diversity of disciplinary backgrounds including award-winning teachers, practitioners, and researchers. Collectively, we provide a distinct interdisciplinary approach, well-suited to practice in a complex world. The recent University-wide, multi-million-dollar investment facilitating the creation of the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking builds on the University of Calgary’s community-based research strengths to foster the ideal context for interdisciplinary collaboration typical of our disciplines.
