Architectures of Education: Ramon Amaro and ruangrupa (farid rakun)
Moderated by Bill Balaskas
Architectures of Education is a two-day programme with presentations, screenings, keynotes and workshops seeking to reflect on cultures and architectures of education today, and speculate about what futures may lay on the horizons of knowledge production.
Throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century, as pedagogical ideals change, so have their architectural form. The spatial organisation of learning is a field of design that includes the positioning of bodies, the texture and colour of surfaces, the proportionality of objects, programmatic offerings, time scheduling, and beyond. Similarly, learning can be seen as a subject of design, as the process of crafting of minds and characters. With the advancement not just of new learning models but new learning technologies, the classroom and education of tomorrow may not look like how it did today.
In collaboration with Nottingham Trent University, University of Nottingham, Kingston University and e-flux Architecture.
