Event Details

This workshop-style program explores the boundaries of education with regard to human aspects of design and further investigates where these skills are acquired, in schools and in the workplace. Within the structure of architectural education, what ways is human-centric research being taught and how can we envision this in the future? In practice, firms are seeking to meet the needs of clients, building occupants, and the larger community. How are firms going beyond the traditional boundaries of practice to better understand these needs and social concerns? Thought leaders in education and practice share examples of pushing boundaries to bring the impact of research into design.
