Architecture is Vital to Native Culture

Building better architects with native communities

Strengthening connections, enriching perspectives, and creating a brighter future together

DesignBuildUTAH@Bluff is a graduate architecture program at the University of Utah focused on immersing students in hands-on cross-cultural experiences. We work in partnership with the Rural and Native communities of San Juan County in the Utah Four Corners.
