Five Critical Essays on Architectural Education

Although it specifically references the UK, this pamphlet’s critique is applicable broadly.  Within the academy of all places, dissenting views should not just be tolerated but argued over and challenged so that bold, new, and sometimes unorthodox ideas can flourish. Only by opening the floor to a range of speculative opinions will we be able to clarify the best direction for the subject. We must provide the space for faculty members, academicians, architects and students to genuinely experiment.
