Edited by two practicing architects and professors Harriet Harriss and Lynette Widder, Architecture Live Projects is an invaluable collection of essays and case studies on work completed “in the borderlands between architectural education and built environment practice.” Commonly known as design-build in the US, Live Projects include community-based design, urban advocacy, and other forms of hands-on and “real world” learning that are quickly gaining ground in university architecture programs. An essential for students, educators and practitioners with an interest in this type of work, the 24 essays dive into theory, learning ambitions, academic best practices, licensing and accreditation, and architectural integrity.
Architecture Live Projects provides a persuasive, evidence-based advocacy for moving a particular kind of architectural learning, known as Live Projects, towards a holistic integration into current and future architectural curricula. Because of their position, Live Projects as vehicle for simultaneously providing teaching and service has the potential to recalibrate the contesting claims that both academia and profession make to architecture… It is an invaluable resource to current and future Live Projects advocates – whether they aim to move from pedagogy into practice or practice into pedagogy.
