This piece addresses the practice of critique as it still operates within architectural design culture today. It taps a new generation of practitioners as to what they see as their relationship to this tradition.

  • “…a judgement against something […] and it has negative connotations…the other is […] the purpose of a critique, which is to examine the boundaries of knowledge…”

  • “…bringing things from outside of architecture…how those things interacted with […] architecture’s body of knowledge…”

  • “…how the avante garde can […] operate in the world…”

  • “Go to any architecture school, I don’t thing they are re-imagining the world…”

  • “…we don’t […] have unity of one pedagogy, or one school of thought.”
