In 1972, Clemson was one of the first architecture programs in the country to establish a satellite center in Europe. Since then, we have built a "Fluid Campus" with semester-long opportunities for students to study and gain a greater understanding of architecture and urban cultures. With centers in Charleston SC, Barcelona, and Genoa, students can complete their degree requirements while becoming acquainted with the distinct cultures of four remarkable cities. These off-campus centers comprise Clemson's extended urban campus.

iconThe first group of students in residence in Fall 1973, the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building Research and Urban Studies in Genoa, has served as a model for off-campus architectural education for 40 years. Balancing a studio experience with history, design and practice.

iconAmong European cities, Barcelona is known for its unique city plan, wonderful urban spaces, and rich architectural tradition. The city is a living urban and architectural laboratory. Students take study tours around the city and to other cities in Spain as part of the curriculum.
