Each spring, the School of Architecture offers a series of workshops for students, led by faculty and taught in collaboration with guest instructors who are leading practitioners within their disciplines, and who bring an experimental nature to the work. In conjunction with the workshops, each guest instructor offers a free roundtable discussion featuring several UMN School of Architecture faculty.
