Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University in New York City, also known simply as GSAPP, is regarded as one of the most important and prestigious architecture schools in the world.[1][2][3][4][5] It is also home to the well-regarded Masters of Science program in Advanced Architectural Design, Historic Preservation, Real Estate Development, Urban Design, and Urban Planning.

The school's resources include the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, the United States' largest architectural library and home to some of the first books published on architecture, as well as the origin of the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals.[6]

Recent deans of the school have included architect James Stewart Polshek, noted architectural theorist and deconstructivist architect Bernard Tschumi, Mark Wigley, and Amale Andraos (2014-2021).[7] Weiping Wu serves as Interim Dean since January 2022.[8]


Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) has evolved over more than a century. It was transformed from a department within the Columbia School of Mines into a formal School of Architecture by William Robert Ware in 1881—making it one of the first such professional programs in the country.[9]


While the number of specialized programs being offered by the school has multiplied over the years, architecture remains the intellectual core of the school.[10]


Columbia GSAPP has been ranked #2 among the Top Architecture Graduate Programs five times over the past ten years on DesignIntelligence's ranking of programs accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board, including the 2020 rankings.[5][11][12][13][14][15][16][17]

Research Centers

Center for Spatial Research

The Spatial Research Center was established in 2015 as a center for urban research that combines design, architecture, urbanism, humanities and data science. It sponsors research and curricular activities built around new technologies of mapping, data visualization and data collection and data analysis.[28]

Center for Urban Real Estate

The Center for Urban Real Estate was founded in 2011 in order to address the challenges of a rapidly urbanizing world and the most complex problems of the real estate industry. From the concerns of inequitable socio-economic outcomes in the urban environment, through the spectacular revitalization of urban centers, such as Lower Manhattan, after the devastation of terrorism, natural disaster, and deteriorating infrastructure, to creating technological systems for optimized investment decisions, the Center serves as a forum for robust discussions and rigorous analysis by real estate professionals and scholars. A major current focus of the Center is the development of advanced applied technology that can be achieved by bridging the gap between the compelling needs of the real estate industry and the advanced research and resources in technology within the extensive Columbia University ecosystem.[29]

Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture

The Buell Center was founded in 1982. Its mission is to advance the interdisciplinary study of American architecture, urbanism, and landscape. In recent years, the Center has convened issue-oriented conversations around matters of public concern, such as housing, that are addressed to overlapping constituencies including academics, students, professionals, and members of the general public. The Center's research and programming articulate facts and frameworks that modify key assumptions governing the architectural public sphere—that is, the arena in which informed public analysis and debate about architecture and urbanism takes place.[30] The center is located in Buell Hall.

Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting

Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting (also known as C-Lab[31]) was founded in 2005 by Jeffrey Inaba.[31] It is an experimental research unit which investigates how cities would evolve and studies urban and architecture issues related to new technologies.
