Ecosa institute susantainable Architecture School in Prtescott Arizona.
From previous clients...

"My experience with Ecosa Institute students was impressive from start to finish. They catered whole- heartedly to my desire for a truly sustainable teaching center by designing a building that resembled more of a living being than a structure. Their work was thorough and professional involving technical research, scale models and alternative design options."

"From my experience and the work they have accomplished for others, I have no doubt Ecosa students will continue to prove themselves on the forefront of cutting edge sustainable design for years to come." -Cody Lundin, Aboriginal Living Skills School, LLC

"Your students tackled an insurmountable problem with a client who gave them little to start with. They took to heart our broad admonition to ‘let the land tell you what to do with it.‘ They succeeded beyond any of our wildest expectations."

"I have been involved in hundreds of development projects in my industrial career. This was one of the top creative groups of young people that I have worked with in a long, long time."

"The ECOSA Program helped us organize our thoughts and worked with us to bring our dreams to a point where they could be represented by a building. The process you used was very important to our community because it respected the unique nature of our culture and encouraged the widest participation by members of our community."

Past Student Projects

One of the unique aspects of the Ecosa Certificate in Regenerative Ecological Design and the Masters in Regenerative Ecological Design is that students engage with actual clients, real sites and real budgets. Students work on a number of projects each semester, both large and small, that incorporate regenerative ecological design principles and also meet client needs. Past organizations we have partnered with have included Habitat For Humanity, Solace International, Prescott Creeks, Grand Canyon Society, Northern Arizona University, Desert Mission Neighborhood Renewal, Mountain Oak School, and the Empowerment Society. If you or your organization would like to be considered as a client for one of our semester projects, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
