The Launch will be held primarily in the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture. The School of Architecture’s main building, Campbell Hall, is located on the Arts Grounds. It is surrounded by the UVa Art Museum, Ruffin Hall, and the Culbreth Theater.

The Culbreth Parking Garage will be open for attendees of the Biophilic Cities Launch on Thursday, October 17 and Friday, October 18.

If you are unable to find a space in the Culbreth garage, it is suggested that you use the hourly visitor parking garage beneath the Newcomb Hall Bookstore at 400 Emmet Street South. From there you can walk past the Rotunda and along Rugby Road to reach the School of Architecture, behind the UVa Art Museum.

Should you have special physical needs that require closer vehicle access, please contact Cynthia Smith, Assistant to the Dean in advance of your visit at (434) 924-7019.
