The Future of Architectural Education

Date: 24 November 2014

This panel discussion chaired by Professor Robert Mull, The Architecture Foundation Trustee and Director of Architecture at The Cass, will explore and debate the future of formal architectural education.  

What should students learn? , are there gaps in the curriculum?, and which skills are  increasingly important to have in order to rise to the many challenges architects face in practice . Leading academics and practitioners will present their views on how architectural education can respond to the changing role of the architect.
