Lunchtime Lectures: Architecture Competition as a Pedagogic Tool in Architecture Education

Senior Lecturer Simon Warren and the winners of the Better Philadelphia Challenge 2019, MArch students Joseph Earley, Graham Davey, Jade Moore & Michele Prendini, will be reflecting on their win and the role of competition in architecture education.

By utilising architecture competitions, students can engage with real life situations and have an actual and positive impact beyond the limits of the academic institution. This lecture explores the multifarious aspects of student engagement in competitions referencing the competition many entries and successes attributed to Simon’s design studios. The latest being the winning of The Philadelphia Challenge 2019.

Simon Warren co-directs Project Office, the school’s live project consultancy of staff and students. Project Office questions how architects practice with ethical grace and respond to climate change and energy depletion imperatives. It aims to make architects’ skills available to under-represented communities so that they can make positive changes to their environments. Simon is currently working towards a PhD titled ‘Live Project Pedagogy - Architecture in the Making’.

All welcome, no booking required.
