Teaching Architecture, Practicing Pedagogy
A graduate student symposium dedicated to new research on the history of architectural education in the 20th century
Education has persisted as a fundamental facet of architectural culture throughout a spectrum of aesthetic, scientific, ideological, institutional and political upheavals. Pervading the realms of both professional and experimental practices, and functioning as a potent medium for the dissemination of ideas and methods, architectural pedagogy’s multiple guises across different historical and international contexts offer a diverse range of lenses for critically examining the discipline’s continuing transformations. Recognizing the current emergence of much new research on architectural education during the 20th century, this symposium seeks to create a platform for this expanding realm of scholarship.
“Teaching Architecture, Practicing Pedagogy” is a two-day graduate symposium that will take place at the Princeton University School of Architecture on February 11-12, 2011. The event will feature a keynote lecture by Jean-Louis Cohen, Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at the NYU Institute of Fine Arts and closing remarks by Joan Ockman. The symposium is organized by Vanessa Grossman, Enrique Ramirez and Irene Sunwoo.
