SUMMER SESSIONS: ARCHITECTURE SCHOOLS ENGAGING, INNOVATING, and CHANGING THE FIELD

This event is the first of three Summer Sessions, a forum that will bring together architecture faculty from across Boston to discuss pedagogies and how their students, courses, and schools are engaging with, innovating in, and changing the field of architecture. This series is meant for students, faculty, practicing architects and firm leaders, and all those interested in what architectural education in Boston is today and how it might affect the field tomorrow.


New ideas, functions, structures, compositions, and products of practice are expanding the Architect’s agency in the world. In the school, practice is presented to students as the relationship of more-or-less knowable and established factors, but practice is also increasingly presented as a fertile terrain for innovation and impact, to clients, communities, and the discipline itself. This Summer Session brings together three innovators and teachers to discuss what’s next in professional practice.
