109th Annual Meeting of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture – “Expanding the View: Prospect(s) for Architectural Education Futures,” St. Louis, MO

109th Annual Meeting

Abstract: How can we effectively ground design pedagogies around site study and community engagement during a time of online learning? If COVID-19 has forced a rethinking of studio teaching, how might our new approaches be calibrated towards renegotiations of traditionally imbalanced hierarchies and systems? This panel of practitioners and professors of urban design, landscape architecture, and architecture will discuss their strategies to firmly ground their design teaching in situated ethical relationships with communities, colleagues, students, and sites. Their work and teaching spans from Fez, Morocco and Raipur, India to New Orleans, Toronto, and northern Ontario in North America.
