The Department of Architecture at the American University in Dubai (AUD) is now an official member of the US-based Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA).
The ACSA is a non-profit, membership association founded in 1912 to advance the quality of architectural education.
“Thanks to the tireless efforts deployed by Assistant Professor of Architecture Dr Georges Kachaamy, an active and talented academic, architect and artist, Architecture at AUD earned its membership with ACSA, a prestigious institution which will definitely benefit both students and faculty alike.” said Dr Nabyl Chenaf, Dean of the School of Architecture, Art and Design.
ACSA provides a forum for ideas on the leading edge of architectural thought. Issues that will affect the architectural profession in the future are being examined today in ACSA member schools.
The association maintains a variety of activities that influence, communicate, and record important issues. These include scholarly meetings, workshops, publications, awards and competition programs, support for architectural research, policy development, and liaison with allied organisations.
