Raoul Wallenberg, a 1935 graduate of theUniversity, has been called one of the 20th century’s most outstanding heroes. He is credited with saving tens of thousands ofJews from extermination at the hands of theNazis and Fascists in the waning days of WorldWar II. Each year, students in their final studio of the BS in Architecture degree participate in the Wallenberg Studio, which honors the legacy of Raoul Wallenberg through an overall studio theme focused on a broad humanitarian concern, explored through propositions put forward by studio section faculty. Students are challenged to question architecture’s relationship to humanitarian issues.
