Description

The anticipated reduction in the duration of architecture education in the UK and across Europe has encouraged a sense of collective openness to exploring other models of professional education delivery. There’s never been a better time to be thoughtfully innovative and take the initiative.This book provides a much needed debate about the future of architectural education, placing it within its unique historic tradition and raising questions as to where architecture schools should be situated, who should be teaching it and whether it should be treated as an interdisciplinary, rather than silo-based subject.This is not just a book for academics. It comprises voices from those who are doing as well as talking; students, recent graduates, practitioners, educators and developers, consolidating academic and well as practice-based evidence into a set of actionable insights which should question, provoke and inspire. 

Also available as an eBook from our eBookshop.

Customer Reviews

Gemma Barton, Lecturer, University of Brighton

Date Reviewed: September 2015

Anyone who doesnt know where they sit within the argument about education providing graduates with appropriate skills to enter the working world will do once they have read Radical Pedagogies. Its an intriguing read, hopefully its message will resonate throughout the discipline and beyond.

Neil Lamb, Subject Leader in Architecture, Robert Gordon University

Date Reviewed: September 2015

This is a useful contribution to the debate around the future of British architectural indication reminding us of the context and through this perhaps pointing the way forward. It's a useful text for teachers and those interested in the history and teaching of design.
