Located on a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean, the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building Research and Urban Studies has been owned by the CAF and operated by the CAF and the School of Architecture since 1973. This large villa provides living, studying, and dining accommodations for 22 students each academic semester. The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Design and Building. We invite you to visit the School of Architecture website to see studio work and the shared experiences of students who have stayed at the CAF Daniel Center in Genoa.
