a PhD in live projects and architectural education

Sunset in Crosby

It’s a hot sunny evening in Crosby, north of Liverpool. I’ve been in town for the International/Transnational Spaces of Education seminar today, organised by the University of Surrey and hosted by the University of Liverpool. It was the first of four on the theme of New Spaces of Education: The changing nature of learning in the 21st century. Stepping outside my own discipline for a couple of hours introduced some remarkable facts and themes, and also gave me some pre-supervision time to reflect on what I’ve been doing this month. Much of my reading this month has been of and around Donald Schon’s key texts; a longer blog post discussing that is still being formulated. However, as with last month, it’s been helpful to revisit the books and articles that I’ve been reading this month…
