Educational Aims and Values through Architecture

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipating in a conference, workshop, ...


This was the third of three linked seminars on the theme of Architecture and Education.

Each seminar drew on the Architecture and Education 1969 special issue of the Harvard Educational Review that, following the events of 1968, put forward bold and passionate proposals from some of the leading architects of the time as well as planners, community activists, artists and a child psychiatrist.

Keynote speakers helped to frame the debate but the seminars allowed plenty of time for discussion in order to acknowledge challenges, exchange ideas and explore proposals that foreground architecture and design in creating a radical agenda for increasing the humanity of spaces supporting 21st century education, spaces that include but go beyond learning and attainment.

Keynote Speakers:
Steve Higgins (Professor of Education, University of Durham)
Ola Uduku (Professor of Architecture, Manchester School of Architecture)
Bob Wallbridge (Design and Implementation, Hampshire County Council)

The seminars were held at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge and funded by a University of Cambridge Arts and Humanities Research Award.
