Founded in 1982, The Center for American Architecture and Design (CAAD) aims to harness the interdisciplinary nature of architecture to raise awareness of the possibilities for enhanced human welfare posed by higher design standards. Through public events and publications, CAAD cultivates appreciation for architecture through the investigation of  fundamental issues that are integral to our understanding and experience of the built environment.

The Center is located in Battle Hall Room 105 on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
