Item description for Thinking Practice: Reflections on Architectural Research and Building Work by Nicholas Temple & Soumyen Bandyopadhyay...
In the rapidly changing climate of the architectural profession, Thinking Practice presents an extraordinary examination of the increasingly dynamic relationships between academic research, teaching and practice. This book brings together a unique and diverse collection of writings by leading academics and theorists who are also practicing architects.
By exploring the interface between architectural practice, academic research and design teaching, the book provides a fascinating insight into a wide range of theoretical and philosophical ideas about he meaning of building in the twenty-first century.
Each contributor takes one of their own projects as a starting point, examining it in the context of their specialized field of research and approach to studio teaching. These case studies serve as critical frameworks in which issues of continuity between design thinking, teaching pedagogy and theoretical ideas are examined. The projects presented vary significantly in scale and complexity and are in such diverse locations as Prague, Ghana, Portland USA, Wales, Bradford, London, Muscat and Quito.
