Students enjoy an 8-million-dollar facility with integrated classes, shared resources, and studios and labs that simulate real-world, professional environments. Moreover, the facility incorporates the equipment and workflow of professional design studios into the curriculum.
With 38,000 square feet of space, the Academy features natural lighting, sweeping views of Downtown Seattle and Puget Sound from expansive west-facing windows, and a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier to the southeast. Cal Anderson Park to the east possesses a quiet charm with the water sculpture, park benches, and tree-lined greenery.
