Wiley, Feb 28, 1995 - Architecture - 145 pages
One of the most complicated topics for discussion within schools of architecture throughout the world is the process of educating an architect. This text explores this and many more topical issues. Divided into two parts, the book initially charts the history of architectural education and examines the diverse variety of approaches and ideologies towards the teaching of architecture that currently exist. It then presents a range of educational methodologies from post-structural theory to craft-based Ruskinian practice along with the friction between global ideologies and regional concerns.
