This second event of the Superonda lecture series Handcrafting Digital Transition, will adress the issue of pedagogy.

More specifically, in what ways can architectural education be enriched by a situated application of handcraft techniques?

Rural Studio – Through three decades of hands-on, place-based teaching and learning, Rural Studio is regarded as one of the oldest, most influential, and well-respected design-build programs in the world. The Studio is located in Hale County, Alabama, and led by Professor and Director Andrew Freear. As part of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture at Auburn University, the core mission of Rural Studio is the education of architecture students who live on site and design and build structures for residents and communities in the under-resourced rural region known as the Black Belt. Rural Studio has educated over 1,200 students who have designed and built more than 220 projects. These projects are driven by research into efficient, healthful housing along with the vital community systems necessary to support sustainable rural living. Rural Studio continually questions what should be built, rather than simply what can be built.
