Architectural Education Podcast

James completed his PhD in QUB on Live Projects in architectural education Sept 2013, under the supervision of Prof Ruth Morrow and Keith McAlister
He recently launched his own fortnightly podcast on Architectural Education. The 3rd episode has now been released and is worth listening if you are a current; or prospective, student of architecture.
In anticipation of the UK’s long awaited RIBA Review of Architectural Education, some familiar questions were posed. Why is architectural education so long? Why does it have such a standardised structure and duration? Is our studio culture supportive or exclusive? Can design crits ever relinquish their combative and abusive reputations? And does the perennial unit system of organising the design studio into a free market of student choice continue to serve students?
