The future of architecture and cities will be the theme of the 2017 ARCH MOSCOW international exhibition of architecture and design. The Rupor communications bureau will curate the LifeStyle Y Project on the way of life of the new generation of millennial citizens and the environment they form. Within the framework of this project MARCH will initiate a discussion on “What to Teach Architects and How in the Digital Age?”
In their daily communication with students, most of whom are of the Y generation, MARCH tutors are acutely aware of the need for a new approach to both teaching and architectural practice. In addition to the usual computer, which has long served as a drawing-board alternative, there appear VR and AR, parametrics and BIM that have brought about a total overhaul of design tools. Meanwhile, man and architecture have remained unchanged, existing on the same scale.
The MARCH director Nikita Tokarev, MARCH tutor and Synthesis project founder Andrey Kiselev, founder of Edutainme online media and new education technology research laboratory, curator of the Moscow International Education Salon (MIES) expert board and international EdCrunch conference co-founder Natalia Chebotar and the architect, GK PIK product manager, Sdelano firm co-founder and MARChI teacher Marko Mihic-Jeftic will discuss what and how architects should be taught under the circumstances.
Discussion moderator: architecture journalist and MARCH lecturer Maria Fadeeva.
