Learning Environments: A Discussion

Alternative, democratic and self-led education models, and the architectural responses associated with them, are the subject of this talk and panel discussion led by architects and academics Aoife Donnelly and Kristin Trommler from Kingston School of Art.

Their research and teaching in the Department of Architecture and Landscape at KSA looks to radical and alternative education models to consider how architectural space can be designed or adapted to promote a more democratic learning context that supports agency, ownership and flexibility. References draw on the practice of 20th Century radical pedagogues such as Ricardo Dalisi and the progressive post-war schools movement in the UK.

Guest speakers include Dr Catherine Burke, Reader in History of Education and Childhood, University of Cambridge, artist Nils Norman, Dr. Adesola Akinleye, dancer and PhD artist-scholar with Middlesex University, and Sol Perez Martinez, PhD researcher at UCL, who will each bring their research and practices around alternative pedagogies and the built environment into the conversation.
