Panel discussion at Architecture Foundation explores and debates the future of formal architectural education as part of Futures in the Making season.
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.
