Call for POSTERS: NEXT SCHOOL | ATMOSPHERE 2020 - Emerging and Experimental Agendas in Design Education

From Beaux-Arts to Bauhaus, and the polytechnic schools to the present-day schools, paradigms of design education have shifted and evolved, each experimenting with different pedagogical philosophies and methodologies, relevant to their context. How are the contemporary pedagogy modeled and structured? What are the methods explored and experimented, and why? How are the contemporary design educations align with the shifting topography of culture and environment? What are the emerging opportunities of design education within today’s social, cultural and ecological context?


NEXT SCHOOL | ATMOSPHERE 2020 is a symposium that will GATHER, DISCUSS and DISSEMINATE pedagogical experiments/examples of design studios/schools today. It will showcase experimental cases, including esoteric and temporary exercises, which are attempting to realign/reinforce the design education with the contemporary context, and imagine the possibilities of next models and structures for the design education, a NEXT SCHOOL.

The symposium will be composed of invited keynotes, selected poster-panel ‘topic’ forums, poster display, discussions, exhibitions, and social events. NEXT SCHOOL is the 12th annual symposium ATMOSPHERE organized by the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba.


NS|A 2020 invites participation from academics, scholars, teachers, students and practitioners who have vested interests in educating designers within contemporary context: how design is taught and learned within the TOPOS of today’s culture, environment, and economy.

SUBMISSION: Authors are invited to submit (emailed) POSTERs (+ABSTRACT) that contain and communicate experimental projects and or pedagogies in relation to ‘Design Education’. A single author CAN submit multiple POSTERS related to different aspects of his/her school’s projects and pedagogy.
