SCI Arc – Institute of Architecture | Southern California

Located in downtown Los Angeles, SCI-Arc is a world-renowned center of innovation and one of the nation’s few independent architecture schools.

Message from the Director

SCI-Arc is always expanding and raising its ambitions. In our globalized era, design matters like never before, and we have the capacity to astonish the world by demonstrating all the different ways in which design can transform it.

Mission Statement

SCI-Arc teaches architects to engage, speculate, and innovate; to take the lead in reimagining the limits of architecture.

History of SCI-Arc

SCI-Arc was founded in 1972 in Santa Monica by a group of faculty and students from the Department of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona, who wanted to approach the subject from a more experimental perspective than traditional schools offered.


SCI-Arc ranks top 10 across all of the survey’s focus areas, including design theory, construction methods, materials, and sustainability, in both the graduate and undergraduate categories.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At SCI-Arc, we believe in the interconnectedness of great design and social change.
