In the decades after World War II, new forms of learning transformed architectural education. These radical experiments sought to upend disciplinary foundations and challenge architectural discourse, teaching, and practice. On the occasion of the publication of Radical Pedagogies (2022), a far-reaching compendium of more than 100 global experiments in architectural education, please join us for a conversation with editors Beatriz Colomina, Ignacio G. Galán, Evangelos Kotsioris, and Anna-Maria Meister. Together with contributors Lydia Kallipoliti, Felicity Scott, and Mabel O. Wilson, we will discuss how these provocative projects from the last century not only shook the foundations of the discipline, but also raised urgent questions about architecture’s role in the new century.
