To what extent do today’s educational initiatives serve as sites of liberation? What is the lineage of radical pedagogy in architecture, and where can FSA fit into that narrative? We will review precedent for experimental architecture education in the United States before collectively investigating the spatial dispositions of learning environments. Activities will encourage activism in the unfolding design of FSA.
Ideas are not products, as much as corporations would like them to be. Ideas are intersections between ourselves and something else, whether that’s a book, a conversation with a friend, or the subtle suggestion of a tree. Ideas can literally arise out of clouds (if we are looking at them). That is to say: ideas, like consciousness itself, are emergent properties, and thinking might be more participation than it is production. If we can accept this view of the mind with humility and awe, we might be amazed at what will grow there.
