Harry Francis Mallgrave: Some Thoughts on Design Education

The Research Network Perception+Space presents: Harry Francis Mallgrave: Some Thoughts on Design Education 

Over the past quarter century we have made major advances in understanding our species in all of its biological, emotional, and sociological complexities, as well as our pivotal relationships with the natural and built environments. Yet the design of buildings and cities has not moved much off the aesthetic and technological markers set more than a half-century ago. What is the divide that disassociates what we know and what we express as designers? Is it not time to reconsider design education and in particular the values learned in the design studio? 

Harry Mallgrave is a distinguished Professor Emeritus from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago and an award-winning scholar. He has published widely on architectural history and theory, spatial perception, architects’ cognition and the design process. Among his recent publications are:  

Building Paradise: Episodes in Paradisiacal Thinking, forthcoming

From Object to Experience: The New Culture of Architectural Design, 2018

An Introduction to Architectural Theory: 1968 to the Present, 2011,and 

Architect’s Brain: Neuroscience, Creativity and Architecture, 2009
