Aravena is most praised, and cited by the <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/51168/pritzker-prize" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Pritzker</a>, for his work on social housing projects in his home base of Santiago de Chile, where he operates as the executive director of the "do tank", <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/145731740/elemental-s-a" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ELEMENTAL</a>.

It's expensive, long, and arguably ineffective in preparing graduates for the realities of the field. So who's actually trying to fix it?</p><p>Will Hunter, former deputy editor of the Architectural Review, has one idea &ndash; start a whole new school altogether. Back in October, Hunter opened the brand new London School of Architecture, starting 30+ postgraduate architecture students on a 2-year course working with local firms on local projects. As the school's founder and director, Hunter wanted to form a "cost-neutral" model of architecture education, where students work part-time &ndash; for pay equal to the cost of tuition &ndash; while also attending courses. Give students a vested interest in their city and practice, narrow the gap between education and practice considerably, and make their training financially sustaining.</p><p>We spoke with Hunter in August, about the thought process behind the school...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/142833231/zoom-in-zoom-out-hashim-sarkis-dean-of-mit-s-school-of-architecture-planning-on-archinect-sessions-one-to-one-5 Zoom In, Zoom Out: Hashim Sarkis, Dean of MIT's School of Architecture + Planning, on Archinect Sessions One-to-One #5 Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2015-12-07T18:08:00-05:00 >2015-12-11T12:10:28-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/sn/snjbidx0fgm2fppi.jpg" width="514" height="333" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Before coming to MIT to serve as dean of the <a href="http://archinect.com/mitarchitecture" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">School of Architecture + Planning</a> in January 2014, Hashim Sarkis taught at <a href="http://archinect.com/harvard" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Harvard's GSD</a> as the Aga Khan professor of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism in Muslim Societies.

Bertelsen&rsquo;s official title under the Danish monarch (Queen Margrethe II) translates to something like &ldquo;Royal Building Inspector,&rdquo; &ldquo;Royal Builder&rdquo; or &ldquo;Royal Surveyor,&rdquo; but essentially means he's responsible for making sure that all the structures belonging to the monarchy stay in shape, and ideally, in use. This includes buildings like the&nbsp;Danish Parliament and the royal family&rsquo;s winter home, Amalienborg Castle.</p><p>Bertelsen's firm, <a href="http://bsarkitekter.dk/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bertelsen &amp; Scheving</a>, was founded in 2007 in Copenhagen, and specializes in historic preservation work. Bertelsen will hold the Royal Builder position until 2016.</p><p>Listen to Archinect Sessions One-to-One #2 with <strong>Jens Bertelsen</strong>:</p><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/neil-denari/id1057340260?i=356797877" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen&nbsp;and subscribe the the new&nbsp;"Archinect Sessions One-to-One" podcast</a></li><li><strong>SoundCloud</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://soundcloud.com/archinect" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to follow Archinect</a></li><li><strong>RSS</strong>: subscribe with any of your...</li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/140888830/next-up-mini-session-8-thomas-kelley-and-carrie-norman-of-norman-kelley Next Up Mini-Session #8: Thomas Kelley and Carrie Norman of Norman Kelley Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2015-11-11T18:04:00-05:00 >2015-11-11T18:05:14-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/a4/a4at08kxkkwfg50s.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Continuing our "<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/646036/next-up" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Next Up</a>" series, recorded at Jai &amp; Jai Gallery in Los Angeles and during the opening weekend of the <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/137806694/archinect-presents-next-up-a-live-podcasting-event-in-collaboration-with-the-chicago-architecture-biennial-this-saturday-october-3rd" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chicago Architecture Biennial</a>,&nbsp;we've been posting the live-interviews&nbsp;as podcast&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/666774/mini-sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mini-Sessions</a>.

Each episode features a single interview with a notable figure in contemporary architecture &ndash; it's that simple. Usually, One-to-One will be led by me or Paul Petrunia, while occasionally others will serve as guide. The conversation will be casual and spontaneous, touching on the interviewee's role in the expanding range of architectural practice, and will serve&nbsp;(we hope)&nbsp;a valuable archival role in future discourse.</p><p>For our very first episode, I spoke with <strong>Neil Denari</strong> of <a href="http://archinect.com/nmda" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Neil M. Denari Architects (NMDA)</a>. Aside from his firm's work, Denari is a tenured professor at UCLA, and was the director of SCI-Arc from 1997 - 2001. We spoke about the shifting focus of architecture education, multitasking, Los Angeles and the recession's impact on architecture.</p><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/neil-denari/id1057340260?i=356797877" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen&nbsp;and subscribe the the new&nbsp;"Archinect Sessions One-to-One" podcast</a></li><li><strong>Stitcher</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=55711&amp;refid=stpr" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to listen</a></li><li><strong>SoundCloud</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://soundcloud.com/archinect" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to follow A...</a></li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/140412534/next-up-mini-session-6-a-panel-discussion-with-dry-futures-jurors Next Up Mini-Session #6: a panel discussion with Dry Futures jurors Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2015-11-04T15:32:00-05:00 >2015-11-04T15:36:33-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/yr/yr7cmjhnny2qzv5u.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Tomorrow (!!!) we'll premiere season two of&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect Sessions</a>, and in anticipation of the launch, we've been posting <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/666774/mini-sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mini-Sessions</a>&nbsp;&ndash; interviews recorded during our&nbsp;first-ever live-podcasting series,&nbsp;"<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/646036/next-up" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Next Up</a>", held at&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/136289145/archinect-presents-next-up-podcasting-the-future-of-architecture-at-jai-jai-gallery-sat-sept-19" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Jai &amp; Jai Gallery</a>&nbsp;in Los Angeles' Chinatown and at the opening weekend of the&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/137806694/archinect-presents-next-up-a-live-podcasting-event-in-collaboration-with-the-chicago-architecture-biennial-this-saturday-october-3rd" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chicago Architecture Biennial</a>.&nbsp;You can listen to past Mini-Sessions&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/666774/mini-sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a>.&nbsp;We'll also be launching a brand new podcast soon.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://instagram.com/jai_n_jai/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/uploads/rp/rp3y8a1nk59jfamc.png"></a></p><p>For our last Mini-Session recorded at Jai &amp; Jai, we spoke with a panel of jurors from Archinect's <a href="http://dryfutures.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Dry Futures</a> competition, featuring: <strong>Charles Anderson</strong> of <a href="http://archinect.com/werk.us" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">werk</a>, <strong>Hadley Arnold</strong> of the <a href="http://archinect.com/aridlands" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Arid Lands Institute</a>, <strong>Ian Quate</strong> and <strong>Colleen Tuite</strong> of <a href="http://archinect.com/greenasfuck" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">GRNASFCK</a> (who joined us via Skype), and <strong>Peter Zellner</strong> of <a href="http://archinect.com/ZNcArchitects" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Zellner Naecker Architects LLP</a>.

I should add, of course, Mr. Norten, staying in the house as Cal Poly Pomona&rsquo;s guest, feeling its energy, its humble experimental brilliance, its importance to architecture and, as an anecdotal moment, not missing a second of the much stuffier Green &amp; Green House where he has also stayed in the past.</p><p>We became friends and agreed what started as modern architecture still continues globally in its many iterations. How can it not?
