SCI-Arc Impact Report 2020-21

Throughout an unprecedented—mostly remote—school year, SCI-Arc remained committed to not only sustaining the level of excellence in education that has been its hallmark throughout its history, but to pursuing new ambitions, which have the potential for profound impact, not only within the institution, but for the Los Angeles community and the field of architecture worldwide.

As Director Hernán Díaz Alonso has said, “These are difficult times, but such times are opportunities for us to have creativity and imagination—and optimism.” As always, the SCI-Arc community rose to the challenge. Whether in socially distanced pods on campus or joining from another continent many time zones away over Zoom, SCI-Arc faculty strove to empower students to achieve their visions, inspired by their tenacity and determination to excel amidst the challenges of daily life in a pandemic.

Now, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the school’s founding, SCI-Arc remains devoted to finding radically new responses to the real needs and aspirations of tomorrow.
