David Garcia will be lecturing on architecture and invention at The National Art Gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania
The fourth session of ARCHITECTURE [discussion] FUND is dedicated to rethinking of how the mechanism of architectural education functions and bringing into a new perspective to the curriculum of an architect. The speakers representing different attitudes are invited to touch upon the subject from their point of view: How has the architecture as discipline changed and what new forms will it take in the future? How wide and multidisciplinary can the architectural education be? How do the processes of research and design interact with it? Has the fundamental master/apprentice model dissolved due to the institutionalizing of the architectural education, or can this model still be recognizable in the performance of the contemporary architectural offices? How does the educational practice reflect ideological frameworks and contexts? Is it becoming a platform for political action?
