The Architectural Academy is a production building located northwest of the North Area expansion territory. It was added during an update on 3.21.2014 as part of the timed quest called Architectural Project Contest.[1]

A total of 10 assets are needed to complete construction of the Architectural Academy. This is equivalent to 15 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
