Mining the Core of the Discipline
“Good education is so important. We do need to look at the way people are taught. It not just about qualifications to get a job. It's about being educated.” - Zaha Hadid
In our contemporary post-digital world, architecture continues to broaden its arsenal of techniques and operates in an increasingly expanded field. Has this unprecedented proliferation and migration distanced architecture from its disciplinary core or helped to transform and reinstate it? RISD Architecture’s core design pedagogy maintains an active dialogue between analog and digital design techniques, advances the discipline of drawing and the efficacy of geometry in the description of space, explores the habits of experience as a lens through which to create innovative spatial design, and critically engages ethical questions about the politics and environmental stances of design practices.
