ARCHITECTURE EDUCATION IN A TIME OF DISCIPLINARY INSTABILITY.
RADICAL PEDAGOGIES is an associated exhibition at "Close, Closer," the Lisbon Architecture Triennial 2013. It opened on 12 September 2013 and will be on display until 15 December 2013. The installation displays the remarkable global array of innovative experiments in architectural education in the postwar period. The world was going through massive transformations and architectural schools became laboratories for reconfiguring the discipline. Everything was challenged. This exhibition traces this astonishingly creative set of experiments and asks to think what kind of reinvention of pedagogy should be happening today.
RADICAL PEDAGOGIES is an ongoing multi-year collaborative research project led by Beatriz Colomina with the PhD students at Princeton University School of Architecture. It has so far involved three years of seminars, interviews, archival research, guest lectures and contributions by protagonists and scholars around the world. Curators: Beatriz Colomina, Ignacio Gonzalez Galan, Evangelos Kotsioris, and Anna- Maria Meister with other PhD students of the School of Architecture at Princeton University.
