Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) is located in Avery Hall. It is the fourth oldest school of architecture in the country. It offers a professional program in Architecture, masters programs in Urban Design, Urban Planning, Real Estate Development, and Historic Preservation.

The school has been known to be very theory-focused since the tenure of Bernard Tschumi as dean. Faculty include renowned critics like Kenneth Frampton and historians like Andrew Dolkart, who wrote Morningside Heights. The school often hosts lectures and speeches with some of the biggest names in the design world.

GSAPP also has studio and lab space in the basement of Fayerweather Hall, and gallery space in Buell Hall.


Tracking President Bollinger's "global university" plans, the school has begun to operate a global network of local studio spaces, Studio-X, in various world cities, including Mumbai, Beijing, Amman, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow (forthcoming), and downtown New York. In the first three, the school coordinates with the new Columbia Global Centers.
