POST-PANDEMIC DESIGN EDUCATION - AN INVESTIGATION ON DESIGN STUDIO PEDAGOGY AND CULTURES IN PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
Autora: Stella Pangilinan
Tutores: Javier Antón y Alvaro Velasco (Architectural Association)
The effect of a global lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has imposed a drastic threat to the studio pedagogy.
Students and educators suffer not necessarily from the loss of tangible space, but that of a unique and nuanced studio culture with almost no online presence. The thesis looks into how cultures are formed in the Architectural Association, The London School of Architecture, Central St. Martin’s, The Bartlett School of Architecture and the Class School of Architecture in London.
My thesis explores how the signature studio pedagogy must be re-imagined in a digital context that allows institutions to visualize their own cultures, expand the existing tactile space, and remain self-aware of their identity in both digital and physical environments.
