Radical Pedagogies


Believing that some forms of education can disrupt rather than reinforce our understanding of the world, Radical Pedagogies explores a series of educational experiments that played a crucial role in shaping architectural discourse and practice in the second half of the 20th century. Part of an ongoing collaborative research project by a team of PhD candidates in the School of Architecture at Princeton University led by Professor Beatriz Colomina.
