Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects

In AIADO, our studios have no boundaries: we are creative across disciplines and we are engaged with our community at SAIC, our context in Chicago, and the world. Our dedicated faculty teach from diverse experience in practices that impact public life and drive public culture. We value the craft that brings ideas into the world; the research that informs criticality, and the compelling stories we tell to share our work.
