'Lifting the Veil' Documenting invisible voices in Architecture LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This seminar introduces the book, Space Unveiled: Invisible Cultures in the Design Studio—published in July 2014 by Routledge Research in Architecture series—as a critical tool for refocusing the cultural, historical, and pedagogical approaches in architecture and design programs to effect change in the number of underrepresented groups in the profession.  Space Unveiled is both entering a vibrant conversation in critical discourse and also adding significant contributions with 22 practicing architects and educators—connecting and unveiling cultural teaching approaches in architectural theory and seminar courses, and in design and non-design studios.  The purpose of this session is two-fold. First, to uncover invisible voices, cultures and pedagogical approaches using cognitive apprenticeship approaches (CAAs) identified by African American architects and educators in architecture education and practice. The session will also reveal cultural perspectives of women and a wide range of diverse design professionals who have experienced and taught cultural approaches that are unfortunate omissions in modern American education.
