A bit of hesitation because having graduated less than two months ago the...wounds are fresh, shall we say. The hand that fed is not yet out of eyesight... The master is still very much near. Take your pick of idioms and metaphors; it is difficult to write on the subject within which one is so acutely implicated. I have been a product of it and continue to subject myself willingly to its current operators. What I have included as my response will react to the pieces written by fellow participants of this current Cross-Talk&mdash;participants who I also call my teachers, peers, and friends. Friends for now, I might add, for if these Cross-Talks are in any way successful they should at least shake these friendly foundations out of simple curiosity and mischievous delight&mdash;two things this writer is quite prone to.&nbsp;</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150019770/cross-talk-2-junejuly-on-pedagogy-today Cross-Talk #2: JuneJuly on 'Pedagogy' Today JuneJuly 2017-07-29T09:00:00-04:00 >2017-08-04T13:02:37-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/j3/j3jnuzq549rh00pi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/j3/j3jnuzq549rh00pi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/j3/j3jnuzq549rh00pi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/j3/j3jnuzq549rh00pi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>When asking questions about how to teach architecture, we have to understand what architecture is as a profession. The profession, as the academy understands it, no longer exists. The service of architecture can largely be separated into two fields: design architecture and executive architecture. Design architecture is concerned with the design of space, and executive architecture with the delivery of that design. Pedagogy today attempts to prepare students for both of these roles, and in that way prepares them for neither. Contractors and fabricators are already comfortable executing architecture, and extra-disciplinary creative agencies (advertising, graphics, branding) take on the design of architecture without hesitation. This is indiscriminate to whether or not those who do the work were trained as architects. This will only continue.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150019767/cross-talk-2-constance-vale-on-pedagogy-today Cross-Talk #2: Constance Vale on 'Pedagogy' Today Constance Vale 2017-07-28T09:00:00-04:00 >2017-07-31T08:15:07-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vsbroe6bsq9gl3j3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vsbroe6bsq9gl3j3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vsbroe6bsq9gl3j3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vsbroe6bsq9gl3j3.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>Pedagogy is animated theory that transforms the discipline. It emerges from discussion, debate, and creation and involves the collaboration of instructors, students, and institutions. Essential to pedagogical development is the understanding that architecture is a cultural discipline, one that thrives on creative speculations that enter into tension with external issues.[1]<a href="http://archinect.com/add_feature#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1" target="_blank"></a> Effective architectural pedagogy alters the world beyond the boundary of its originating institution, changing conformist ideologies and empowering the disenfranchised via the implications of aesthetics.[2] In the pursuit of disciplinary transformation that will destabilize the status quo, pedagogy must first address how to forget and how to fail.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150019622/cross-talk-2-patrick-geske-on-pedagogy-today Cross-Talk #2: Patrick Geske on 'Pedagogy' Today Patrick Geske 2017-07-27T12:29:00-04:00 >2017-07-27T15:54:18-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/g7/g7d4pzdn69anblzv.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/g7/g7d4pzdn69anblzv.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/g7/g7d4pzdn69anblzv.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/g7/g7d4pzdn69anblzv.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>At its core, architecture is a personal pursuit that involves an itinerant and systematic questioning of everything one grows up to find in the world&mdash;pre-existing as it were, solid and opaque as if somehow natural.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150019079/archinect-s-summer-reading-list-recommendations-from-steven-holl-kate-wagner-diana-agrest-katya-tylevich-jenny-sabin-and-samuel-bravo Archinect's Summer Reading List: recommendations from Steven Holl, Kate Wagner, Diana Agrest, Katya Tylevich, Jenny Sabin and Samuel Bravo Mackenzie Goldberg 2017-07-26T15:36:00-04:00 >2017-07-26T18:38:40-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/bv/bvvy69t33cyponnn.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/bv/bvvy69t33cyponnn.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/bv/bvvy69t33cyponnn.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/bv/bvvy69t33cyponnn.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>The summer months are the ideal time to peruse a book from your beach towel, airplane seat, hotel bed, or more likely, the coffee shop you are hiding away from your unconditioned apartment at.

Now college is more or less mandatory in many lines of work, and an advanced degree is almost a requirement to be an architect. But somehow an old idea persists: the idea of the architect as a generalist problem-solver, a gentleman amateur. This is a nineteenth century idea that fit, say, Frank Lloyd Wright, but, strangely enough, it also fits most contemporary architects that come to mind.<br></p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150019166/cross-talk-2-pedagogy-of-the-present-frederick-l-ackerman-s-unrealized-vision-for-architectural-education-by-zachary-tate-porter Cross-Talk #2: 'Pedagogy of The Present — Frederick L.

Yet, while architects can and should celebrate this exciting culture of exchange, there is also the risk of becoming too insulated from the problems and paradigms of larger culture. Ultimately, architectural schools bear the burden of navigating these forces and setting the tone for emerging professionals. As architectural educators chart the course for our discipline, they would be wise to revisit the pedagogical visions espoused by our predecessors.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150018807/besler-sons-tag-team-as-they-wrestle-with-the-challenges-of-starting-a-small-practice Besler & Sons Tag-Team as They Wrestle with the Challenges of Starting a Small Practice Mackenzie Goldberg 2017-07-24T12:00:00-04:00 >2017-08-01T00:17:55-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/hz/hz5twbmxo9v46whz.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/hz/hz5twbmxo9v46whz.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/hz/hz5twbmxo9v46whz.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/hz/hz5twbmxo9v46whz.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>Erin Besler is a trained architect with an undergraduate degree from <a href="http://archinect.com/yale" target="_blank">Yale</a> and an M.Arch I from <a href="http://archinect.com/sciarc" target="_blank">SCI-Arc</a>.
