Beyond asking those profiled how and why, one of the key questions we ask is how success is measured. How achievement is defined is speculative, yet it is crucial to understanding what makes any endeavour worthwhile.
Education, and our access to it, is ever widening. The internet’s rapid expansion over the past decade has enabled more people to access education than ever before. But this also has its pitfalls. We live in a time of information overload so who we learn from and how, matters.
Profiled in this issue are not just schools of architecture, but people and organisations contributing to the entire sphere of education pertaining to the world around us. By shedding light on their efforts, we hope to inspire the next generation of educators and to also, most pertinently, highlight our shared agenda: making a better world, something which can only be a collaborative effort.
In this issue of Citizen, we talked to Neil Pinder of the Graveney School; Mike Emmerik of The Independent School for the City; Venetia Wolfenden of Urban Learners; Finn Williams of Public Practice; Regina Loukotová of ARCHIP; and Euan Blair of Multiverse.
