Rethinking Basic Design in Architectural Education provides historical and computational insights into beginning design education for architecture. Inviting the readers to briefly forget what is commonly known as basic design, it delivers the account of two educators, Denman W. Ross and Arthur W. Dow, from the turn of the twentieth century in Northeast America, interpreting key aspects of their methodology for teaching foundations for design and art. This alternate intellectual context for the origins of basic design as a precursor to computational design complements the more haptic, more customized, and more open-source design and fabrication technologies today. Basic design described and illustrated here as a form of low-tech computation offers a setting for the beginning designer to consciously experience what it means to design. Individualized dealings with materials, tools, and analytical techniques foster skills and attitudes relevant to creative and technologically adept designers. The book is a timely contribution to the theory and methods of beginning design education when fast-changing design and production technology demands change in architecture schools’ foundations curricula.

During the last three decades or so there has been a substantial shift in architectural design education. These changes have manifested in an increased criticism of the traditional design education; attempts to reconsider/rethink the basic assumptions, theories and practices of traditional design education; and calls for major changes in studio culture. The drivers of this change include epistemological, social, and economical forces among which are new knowledge and technological developments; increased use of computers and information technology in design education and practice; pressure on institutions of higher education to reduce space use; and changing student demographics. Forty five authors from all over the world come together to address new discourse in architectural design education. The 45 articles of the book are organized under nine themes: virtual and distributed design education, digital design education, digital visualization and design teaching, reflections on architectural design education, integration of studio with other teaching, theoretical issues in learning and teaching design, creativity & critical thinking, alternative studio/design built studio, and teaching studio.

As San Juan nears the 500th anniversary of its founding, Arleen Pabón-Charneco explores the urban and architectural developments that have taken place over the last five centuries, transforming the site from a small Caribbean enclave to a sprawling modern capital. As the oldest European settlement in the United States and second oldest in the Western Hemisphere, San Juan is an example of the experimentation that took place in the American "borderland" from 1519 to 1898, when Spanish sovereignty ended. The author also investigates post-1898 examples to explore how architectural ideas were exported from the mainland United States. Pabón-Charneco covers the varied architectural periods and styles, aesthetic theories and conservation practices of the region and explains how the development of the architectural and urban artifacts reflect the political, cultural, social and religious aspects that metamorphosed a small military garrison into a urban center of international significance.

Architecture is on the brink. It is a discipline in crisis. Overthe last two decades, architectural debate has diversified to thepoint of fragmentation and exhaustion. What is called for isan overarching argument or set of criteria on which to approach thedesign and construction of the built environment. Here, theinternationally renowned architect and educator Michael Henseladvocates an entirely different way of thinking about architecture.By favouring a new focus on performance, he rejects longstandingconventions in design and the built environment. This not onlybridges the gap between academia and practice, but, even moresignificantly, the treatment of form and function in design. Italso has a far-reaching impact on knowledge production anddevelopment, placing an important emphasis on design research inarchitecture and the value of an interdisciplinary approach. Though ‘performance’ first evolved as a concept inthe humanities in the 1940s and 1950s, it has never previously beensystematically applied in architecture in an inclusive manner. HereMichael Hensel offers Performance-Orientated Architecture as anintegrative approach to architectural design, the built environmentand questions of sustainability. He highlights how core conceptsand specific traits, such as climate, material performance andsettlement patterns, can put architecture in the service of thenatural environment. A wide range of examples are cited to supporthis argument, from traditional sustainable buildings, such as theKahju Bridge in Isfahan and the Topkapí Palace in Istanbul tomore contemporary works by Cloud 9, Foreign Office Architects,Steven Holl and OCEAN.
