Studio Futures

In stock (49 items available)
Studio Futures examines contemporary practices in design education, with a focus on the studio model, to understand how educators are responding to the demands of architectural practice. Includes case studies of innovative studio models and critical essays on the history of the design studio and how it might respond to the changing demands of practice, research, pedagogy and society. A survey of architects enriches this material with observations on the challenges at the coalface.Throughout much of the twentieth century, the design studio has been an important locus of invention and experimentation in architecture: both smelter and test-bed for new ideas. But with recent developments in digital technology, new materials and construction practices, shifts in the client-architect relationship, and architectural practice subject to ever more onerous procurement models, is the studio model still relevant? Bringing together leading thinkers from across professional practice and academia, Studio Futures is a sustained reflection on the relevance of the design studio to contemporary conditions. Perhaps more importantly, though, it offers vital insights into what the future might hold for this pivotal platform for architectural education and production.
