Erasmus+ “Confronting Wicked Problems: Adapting Architectural Education to the New Situation in Europe”

 

The project´s point of departure is the acknowledgement that architecture as an education, a discipline and a profession has to redefine and release its potential for problem‐solving and innovation within a new economic and societal context. This new normal implies that the knowledge basis, teaching methods and role models transferred in architectural education have to be adapted to a new reality. There is a strong demand for diversification both in architectural education and in practice.

Generally the project raises the question of how to teach architecture today in Europe, and especially how curriculum and teaching should be adapted to the new societal and professional situation. The project aims at strengthening the architectural graduates´ ability to face this new normal and thus improve the their social impact and employability.
