Global. Dynamic. Inspiring.

Each year the Stuckeman School hosts dynamic, thought-provoking professionals, educators, builders, artists, and icons from the fields of architecture, graphic design, and landscape architecture in our Lecture and Exhibit Series.

We house exhibits showcasing spectacular projects and bodies of work that challenge us to achieve more than just the obvious or adequate. Our guest lecturers and exhibitors come from around the world, and span disciplines and approaches to reveal new ideas and technologies, provide professional focus, and inspire.
