Design Studio Pedagogy

Design Studio Pedagogy: Horizons for the Future (Ashraf M. Salama and Nicholas Wilkinson, editors) was published in 2007 following a comprehensive collective effort since the development of New Trends in Architectural Education: Designing the Design Studio (Ashraf M. Salama, 1995) and Architectural Education Today: Cross Cultural Perspectives (Ashraf M. Salama, William O'Reilly, and Kaj Noschis, editors, 2002) . It was developed in response to the lack of research and voices on design pedagogy and to provide thoughts, ideas, and experiments of design educators of different generations, different academic backgrounds, who are teaching and conducting research in different cultural contexts. It probes future universal visions within which the needs of future shapers of the built environment can be conceptualised and the design pedagogy that satisfies those needs can be debated. This effort was followed by subsequent books that include Transformative Pedagogy in Architecture and Urbanism (Ashraf M. Salama, 2009 & 2021), Spatial Design Education: New Directions for Pedagogy in Architecture and Beyond (Ashraf M. Salama, 2015 & 2016), and the forthcoming volume: Routledge Companion of Architectural Pedagogies of the Global South (Harriet Harriss, Ashraf M. Salama, Ane Gonzalez Lara, editors, 2021/2022).

Design Studio Pedagogy: Horizons for the Future, Ashraf M. Salama & Nicholas Wilkinson (eds.), Urban International Press, 2007

Addressing academics, practitioners, graduate students, and those who make decisions about the educational system over twenty contributors remarkably introduce analytical reflections on their positions and experience. Two invited contributions of N. John Habraken and Henry Sanoff offer visionary thoughts on their outstanding experience in design pedagogy and research.

Structured in five chapters, the book introduces theoretical perspectives on design pedagogy and outlines a number of thematic issues that pertain to critical thinking and decision making; cognitive and teaching/learning styles; community, place, and service learning; and the application of digital technologies in studio teaching practices, all articulated in a conscious endeavour toward the betterment of the built environment.
