edu.arh: Practices in Architectural Education

Posted on February 8th, 2021 by Nicole Sakr

Boštjan Vuga interviewed Nader among other architects/scholars for this exhibition accompanying the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana. The exhibit raises questions of architectural education today and the role architecture schools play in society. The exhibition is commissioned by and located at the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana and will run through the end of May.

“In the academy, we bring the circumstances of the world back into the studio, but effectively with challenges that require new forms of exploration, experimentation, and rethinking –maintaining a speculative edge for the school. What we don’t necessarily do is to prepare the students for what constitutes practice as we know it today. Instead, what we imagine is that we are preparing students for a practice that has yet to be, something that they need to imagine, project forth, and advance –in order that they themselves develop new protocols and practices that are unprecedented for uncertain times that lie ahead.”

-Nader Tehrani
