An article entitled <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/1989/11/11/opinion/the-end-of-the-war-to-end-wars.html" target="_blank">&ldquo;The End of the War to End Wars&rdquo;</a> reads: &ldquo;Crowds of young Germans danced on top of the hated Berlin wall Thursday night. They danced for joy, they danced for history. They danced because the tragic cycle of catastrophes that first convulsed Europe 75 years ago, embracing two world wars, a Holocaust and a cold war, seems at long last to be nearing an end.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/83387409/7-lessons-from-the-3rd-international-architectural-education-summit 7 Lessons from the 3rd International Architectural Education Summit Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-10-07T10:45:00-04:00 >2013-10-14T16:33:11-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/l3/l3neq8xemjrpbvoz.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> Just over a year ago, the <em>Architectural Review</em> published &ldquo;Alternative Routes for Architecture&rdquo;, calling for a drastic reinterpretation of architectural education in the face of rigid institutions and extreme financial strains. Certainly this demand is older than a year -- as we allow technology to knit information more thickly into our cultural fabric, we question the nature of education at large as having a physical place and hierarchy, through systems such as MOOCs or mobile workspaces. Add prohibitively high costs, followed by debt and depressing unemployment rates, and the architect is getting fit to reconstitute itself as newly relevant and multi-faceted professional.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/60584804/student-works-drx-2012-minimal-surface-highrise-structures Student Works: DRX 2012 – Minimal Surface Highrise Structures Archinect 2012-11-02T20:04:00-04:00 >2012-11-11T11:56:44-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/w9/w9n94izb13vu1ajg.jpg" width="514" height="436" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> The Design Research Exchange (DRX) is a non-profit residency program for researchers hosted by <a href="http://www.henn.com/" target="_blank">HENN Architekten</a>. The DRX, initiated by Moritz Fleischmann (HENN Research Director) and Martin Henn (HENN Design Director), provides an open platform to unite experts from various fields. By exploring architectural topics of shared interest, the DRX promotes a multi-disciplinary discussion between academics and professionals.</p>
