Transforming Design Education
As evident in the “Transforming Design Education” article this week, the AIA is focused on the implications for architecture education of innovations in practice. Educators and practitioners alike are asking themselves—and you: What should the curriculum of fall 2009 look like if it is to prepare graduates for the practice in the coming decades?
What do you think?


With 84,492 successful e-mail deliveries . . .

› It’s a great idea—we already use it.
› It’s an interesting concept—I might try it.
› I’m ambivalent about it.
