Rank #1: Episode 32: Limpopo Diaries, Part 3

Podcast cover
Read more

For almost ten years, second-year Architecture students at the University of Nottingham have been building small educational buildings in South Africa. This year, the Department of Architecture and Built Environment invited me to participate in the 2017/18 edition of the project, building a small crèche in the village of Mothopong, near Tzaneen in Limpopo Province for the Thušanang Trust. The Trust is a non-profit founded in 1986 to train teachers and establish community-based Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres.

This is the third in a series of podcasts to be recorded while I was participating in the project as a guest academic staff member. In this episode, recorded during week two of the second phase of the four-week build, I speak again to staff, students and stakeholders in the project as it nears handover to crèche teacher Joyce (pictured, above right). The project ends with a joyful celebration organised by Joyce and fellow community members, at which the students' #ProjectIthuta became the new Mothopong Crèche.

The call for papers for the forthcoming session on transnational live projects mentioned at the end of the episode can be found at colonialandpostcoloniallandscapes.com/sessions (deadline 30 June, 2018).

This is the first in a series of podcasts to be recorded during the University of Nottingham's 2017/18 live project in South Africa. This year's crêche was designed by a group of three second-year students in the second year of Nottingham's ARB/RIBA Part 1 Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) programme. It will be built by approximately thirty students in two consecutive two-week phases over the four weeks of the 2018 Easter vacation. I'm in South Africa for phase two.

Podcast cover
Read more

The 2017 AAE conference (see episode 26) presented the opportunity to sit down with Bryan Bell, Founder and Executive Director of Design Corps and Associate Professor of Architecture at NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. We spoke about his experiences of architectural education and practice, from studying under Peggy Guggenheim to meeting and working with Sam Mockbee. After grad school, he worked for a brief period in the office of Steven Holl before realising his calling lay elsewhere.

Bell is the editor of Good Deeds, Good Design (Princeton Architectural Press, 2003), co-editor with Katie Wakeford of Expanding Design: Architecture as Activism (Metropolis Press, 2008), and co-editor with Lisa M. Abendroth or both the Public Interest Design Practice Guidebook (Routledge, 2015) and the forthcoming Public Interest Design Education Guidebook (Routledge, 2018).

Bryan is also the co-founder of the SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) Network, who are collaborating with the Pacific Rim Community Design Network for the 2018 SEED + Pacific Rim Awards Competition celebrating excellence in Public Interest Design. Three winners will be selected by each of the two networks that represent their principles and selection criteria, with six winning projects receiving a USD3,000 honorarium for a trip for one team representative to present their work at an international conference, taking place at the National University of Singapore on December 14-16, 2018. Click here for more information about the competition - the deadline is 23:59EST on 15 July 2018, and winners will be announced on 4 September 2018.

Rank #5: Episode 28: Regina Loukotová, ARCHIP, Prague

Podcast cover

In the second of two episodes from the Czech Republic, this podcast features an interview with Regina Loukotová, Rector of ARCHIP (the Architecture Institute in Prague). Founded in 2010 and enrolling its first students in 2011, ARCHIP is a private school of architecture in Prague, offering undergraduate and graduate programmes in English. Founded by Loukotová and her late husband Martin Roubík (1949–2008), ARCHIP was established to change the way in which architecture was taught and discussed in the Czech Republic.

Note: this interview was recorded in January 2017, before ARCHIP moved from its home in Letná to DOX in Poupetova in January 2018.

Rank #6: Episode 27: Henri Achten, MOLAB, ČVUT Prague

Podcast cover
Read more

Last year, I lead a field trip with third-year undergraduates from Leicester School of Architecture to Prague. Amongst the usual architectural sightseeing and walking tours, our trip included a visit to two very different schools of architecture, which form the basis of the next two episodes of the podcast.

Dr Henri Achten is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Architecture at Czech Technical University (České vysoké učení technické v Praze, CVUT), Prague, and scientific manager of MoLab, the Faculty's Experimental Design Studio, researching parametric & performative design thinking, contemporary design theory, and rapid prototyping in the design process, as well as offering design studio units with a focus in these areas to students.

Henri was kind enough to give my students a brief tour of the Faculty, before sitting down with me for a short conversation discussing his own journey into research and teaching. He was the first architecture student to use virtual reality to present his MSc diploma project, at TU Eindhoven in 1992, continuing to write a PhD about the classification of graphic elements in architectural drawings and the knowledge embodied in them. He is a current Council Member - and former Vice President and former President - of the Association for Education and Research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe), a non-profit association promoting good practice in the use of computers in research and education in architecture.

Note: this episode was recorded 13 months ago, in January 2017. Henri has subsequently been appointed Vice-Dean of Science, Research, and Artistic Activity.

Rank #8: Episode 25: Richard Hall

Podcast cover

After a break of almost a year, the podcast is back. We begin with a conversation recorded last autumn with Richard Hall, Professor of Education and Technology at De Montfort University, Leicester. Richard co-founded the Institute for Education Futures at DMU, a cross-faculty centre for pedagogic research, through which I met Richard while working on cross-faculty research into learning and teaching. Recorded during the British political party conference season, and just a few days before I left DMU in September 2017, in this episode we discuss Richard's work in education, his politics and his beloved Walsall FC. 

Richard's website is here and his DMU profile is here, and you can find out more about DMU's Institute for Education Futures here.
