Pedagogical Factory: How We Build

September 8, 2007 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Come discuss the state of architecture/design education. Where has it been and where is it going? We often discuss the ways in which the built physical environment affects us, but how does it get built in the first place? What is the relationship between architecture education and the built environment? How does what gets taught to children, adults and professionals impact the designed world? And how can we rethink it? Join in a discussion with folks from archi-treasures, Archecamp, and the Chicago Architecture Foundation about different approaches to architecture and design education. We’ll look at some of their work ranging from community based design/build neighborhood projects, to tuition based alternative design/build immersion camps, to an overhaul of the Chicago public schools architecture and drafting curriculum. We’ll talk about their experiences interacting with many different groups of people about architecture and education, and about the effect this might have on current architectural education institutions. Discussion will be moderated by Charlie Vinz.
