Architecture

The Department offers a five-year program leading to the Bachelor of Architecture degree. The program provides opportunities for general education as well as preparation for professional practice and/or graduate study.

The Department of Architecture offers two graduate degrees in architecture: a three-year accredited professional degree (MArch) and a two-semester to three-semester research degree (MS in Arch). Double-degree programs are currently offered with the Department of Community and Regional Planning (MArch/MCRP) and the College of Business (MArch/MBA).

History
The Department of Architecture was established in 1914 as the Department of Structural Design in the College of Engineering. The name of the department was changed to the Department of Architectural Engineering in 1918. In 1945, the name was changed to the Department of Architecture and Architectural Engineering. In 1967, the name was changed to the Department of Architecture and formed part of the Design Center. In 1978, the department became part of the College of Design.

Abstract
Current research being conducted at Iowa State University assesses active window technology related to energy efficiency through the development and testing of an active, "Smart Window" to be used primarily in light commercial buildings. Individual self contained window units are independently operated based upon program parameters which are determined from a selected menu of parameters for specific installations. The energy sensitive, automatically self-controlled window units are powered by elecoiciry generated by photo voltaic surfaces on the window frames. The testing phase of the research will be completed during the Summer of 1994 in Reno. Nevada, utilizing Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's "Mobile Window Thermal Test Facility." The double celled test facility will be used to compare the performance of a conventional window to that of a Smart Window.
