Public Works

PUBLIC WORKS at the South Dakota State University Department of Architecture (DoArch) was developed to connect students and faculty with towns and cities across the state for the purposes of outreach, service learning, research and design. Our goals include presenting the physical, social and historical qualities of South Dakota’s small cities to design students as a working laboratory; generating interest in good design within individual communities; and increasing the energy and enthusiasm that already exists for building, planning, preservation and development necessary for a bright and sustainable future.
