The Palm Springs School of Architecture - A Collaboration between Cal Poly Pomona and College of the Desert
Be among the first to learn about the developing partnership for the Palm Springs School of Architecture 5-year degree program to be located on the newest College of the Desert campus in Palm Springs. This advanced degree, a first for COD, will be awarded as a result of an exciting partnership between College of the Desert and Cal Poly Pomona to provide sought after advanced architecture degrees previously unavailable to qualified students. College of the Desert is currently planning the new campus as a regional workforce innovation center that will educate and train students for 21st century jobs and careers. This new campus will be a boon to our region for students and an exciting addition to the City of Palm Springs. Join the team of the College of the Desert educators to hear all about the new campus plans, the process for choosing top architectural firms and meet the chosen architects and designers. The Program Master Architect and Site Planner Architects will be on hand to present some initial design concepts, and unique features of the site. The COD and Cal Poly Pomona teams will share exciting architectural concepts and big ideas like “A Year in the Desert”. Jointly presented by College of the Desert, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and the Palm Springs Center for Creativity / Architectural Alliance, the event will feature a visual presentation and panel discussion among experts moderated by Alan Hess.
