Students in the Forest: The Role of Design-Build Pedagogies in Repairing Material Disconnections in Architecture Education
Brown, James Benedict; Camilli, Francesco
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v42 n2 p230-245 May 2023
This article explores an intellectual disconnection in architectural education about the conception of wood as a building material. It explores initiatives to develop in future architects a deeper consciousness of the complex ecology of timber, promoting its sustainable use in the building industry. It explores six case studies drawn from architectural education to explore the ways in which the properties that make timber sustainable are explored through research and design, and how this deep understanding is transferred to students through hands-on applications.
