From the global south: pedagogical encounters in architecture

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

The aim of this issue is to contribute to the global debate on architectural education with a view to complement the discourse advanced in the Global North rather than to compete, compare or contest. Both the five research-based essays and project-based articles selected for this issue of Charrette deal with critical arguments and frameworks for architectural and urban design pedagogy in the Global South. While the research-based essays are supported by empirical investigations or case studies and reflective discussions and conclusions, the project-based articles establish links between research and context explorations, where the milieus and realities of design actions become fundamental aspects and where the design learning is purposive, inquisitive, informed, methodical, and communicable. Primarily, these contributions are envisaged to offer eight encounters and eight voices presenting key aspects of architectural pedagogy in the Global South and to postulate potential opportunities for bringing writings on architectural education and design studio teaching/learning practices to the mainstream discussions generated in the Global North.
