Joan Ockman on what is transforming architectural education

ARCH STUDIO IMAGE

  • Globalism: the field has widened and also opened to remote places
  • The widening of disciplinary boundaries: the rise of the postcolonial studies and by the impact of environmentalism
  • Acceleration of historicity: boundaries between architectural criticism and architectural history have become blurred, there exist new approaches to periodisation.
  • Effects of new technologies and media: convenient access to knowledge is a time saver but also sth that makes us lazier.
