"Design Education as Research Laboratory", Conference at DIA

"Design Education as Research Laboratory", Conference at DIA

With the completion of a first cycle of ten years, the graduate architecture program of DIA (Dessau Institute of Architecture) is hosting an international colloquium on the potential and implications of graduate architectural education viewed as a laboratory for design research.

DIA views this colloquium as a medium for reviewing a decade of its own achievements as well a critical vehicle for an exchange of perspectives on advanced architectural and design education in general and upon graduate design education in particular.

The colloquium will focus upon pedagogical models which emphasize experimental design and approaches to research-oriented activity as new foundations for design education. Diverse interpretations of the idea of the design laboratory as an alternative to the design studio will be critically presented and the components of such models will be introduced.

Location is Bauhaus Lecture Hall (Arch. Walter Gropius 1926), Dessau, Germany. You can register at this email: b.bartelt@afg.hs-anhalt.de. Full program after the break.
