Event Description

Speakers: Swetik Korzeniewski and Andrew Burges

An architect’s career is often described in terms of a lineage of the practices and architects they have worked with – yet prior to practice comes the formative influence of architectural education. The effect of these years on the evolving architect is equally important. The impact of particular educators remains talismanic for some, or a source of reaction and counterpoint to others.

This series of talks is structured as a dialogue between educators and their former students and offers an opportunity to explore the influence of formal teaching in architecture over time. What are the aspects of an architectural education that provoke, refocus or sustain an architect over the course of a career? What resonance does the touchstone of an architect’s education have when measured at 5, 10 and 20 years of practice?

Second in the series curated by architectural collective MMALT, artist and architect Swetik Korzeniewski talks with former student Andrew Burges about the impact and evolution of these teachings into practice.
