Augmenting the field of architectural education

Architectural education in Europe is increasingly being changed by factors such as political regulations, internationalisation, social and climatic transformation processes and not least by rapid digitalisation. Today, architecture schools are looking at how they can position themselves in this environment through innovative didactic, programmatic and spatial restructuring of their organisations.

Using 18 examples, four of which are presented in detail, the publication New Schools of Thought shows tendencies in architectural education beyond higher education. This book focuses on institutions and initiatives which, in addition to classical higher education, also cover previous education for children and young people, research and public mediation as extended areas of architectural education. This publication examines the conditions that shape these "schools of thought".
