New STEM designation for Graduate Architecture Programs

We are pleased to announce that the CIP code for the M.Arch, M.Arch in Architecture + Health, and M.S. degrees has been changed from 04.0201 (architecture) non-STEM, to 04.0902 (architectural and building sciences/technology), a STEM designation.  This new CIP coding will permit international students with F-1 status to extend standard 12-month post-completion optional practical training by an additional 24 months under the STEM OPT extension guidelines of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  The requested coding is well-aligned with the programs' curricula, context and foci, and will provide increased opportunities for our international students.

Amanda Williams, Founder AW Studio

Monday, October 23, 2017, 3:30 PM, Lee Hall Auditorium (2-111)

Clemson's School of Architecture and the Clemson Architectural Foundation is proud to present Amanda Williams as part of our Women in Architecture lecture series. 

Amanda Williams is a visual artist who trained as an architect at Cornell University.  Amanda's practice blurs the distinction between art and architecture. Her projects use color as a lens to highlight the complexities of the politics of race, place and value in cities. She is best known for her series, "Color(ed) Theory," in which she painted the exterior of soon-to-be-demolished houses on the south side using a culturally charged color palatte to mark the pervasiveness of vacancy and blight in black urban communities. The landscapes in which she operates are the visual residue of the invisible policies and forces that have misshaped most inner cities.
