EAAE Education Academy 2nd Workshop: “The profession of the architect, and the role of the school in relation to this profession”

Porto (Portugal), 25-26 November, 2016

Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto (FAUP)


#20161125_EAAE EA_2nd Workshop_Highlight


The EAAE workshop at the Faculty of Architecture, of the University of Porto, will address questions regarding the profession of the architect, and the role of the school in relation to this profession. We intend the workshop to provide shared insights in what is seen as “the profession” (for different parts of Europe, and in different contexts), as well as shared insights in how the school can relate, or is relating, to (that view of) the profession. The workshop will be framed round a (small but thought-provoking) selection of triggering paper presentations in which the school takes a position or a stance.

EAAE Education Academy invites you to attend the workshop, and participate in the debate.
