Educating Architects: How Tomorrow’s Practitioners Will Learn Today

Neil Spiller (Editor), Nicholas Clear (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Many students come to architecture relatively late in their education, so it is in college where they come into contact with those who will influence their entire careers. Many top schools are run by leading global practitioners, who, some might argue, have more lasting influence as educators than as architects.
The wide range of pedagogical philosophies and practical lessons, set out here in specially commissioned essays, creates a fascinating picture of how our ideas and practices of architecture are formed, nurtured and ultimately built for the world to see.
Through both the professional and educational experience of the contributors, we discover many unexpected and unorthodox methods for teaching those who will build our world.
