“I think one generational shift that’s going on has to do with the interest in architecture students to be involved in the community. Students see architecture not just as a profession, like medicine or law, they see it as a kind of service profession, on the order of social work or social science, where they understand that the work they do affects communities and real people, so they want to involve the communities from the beginning in their design process.”
In one of their latest episodes of their Archiculture series, Arbuckle Industries interviews Michael Monti, the executive director of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ASCA). Monti begins by explaining what the ASCA is, then moves on to discuss generational shifts in architecture students and professors. Monti additionally discusses the technologies, namely virtual classrooms, that could further develop and transform the teaching of architecture.
