Volume II—Prelude

Architecture is an act of translation, an embodiment of ideas, a process of acting upon and reacting against. Interlude–Volume II explores the work, discourse, pedagogical tools, methods and practices that are currently shifting the boundaries of what architecture and architectural education is. Questioning the linkage between theory, radical propositions and their embodied forms of articulation, these contributors speak about the processes of navigating the space between what we have been told and taught, and what we cannot yet conceive—proposing an expanded toolset, archive and way of thinking about architecture and architectural pedagogy.

These pedagogical experiments have revealed catalysing effects not only within their local context and institution—but beyond geographic and disciplinary boundaries. Thereby, demonstrating that changes in education are not only necessary but possible.
