Visual Arts and the Built Environment

UWindsor and UDM logos

Visual Arts and the Built Environment [VABE] is a unique program between the SoCA Visual Arts at the University of Windsor (Windsor, Ontario) and the School of Architecture at the University of Detroit Mercy (Detroit, Michigan).

Students working in VABE Studio

VABE brings together students and faculty from both schools to approach the design of the built environment as artist and architect.

By crossing the boundaries of these traditionally separated professions, students learn to examine the built environment from the perspective of aesthetics, creativity, social culture, construction, utility, meaning, and history.
