The Medieval City and the Pilgrimage City: Gondar and Lalibela

Jan 5, 2015

By Brooks Travelling Fellow Amber N. Wiley

Library of Yohannes I in the foreground, Chancellery of Yohannes I in the background. Fasil Ghebbi complex.

I looked at the date on Fasilides Castle—1667—and thought to myself “Wow, this is incredible! If only I had known… I would have taught my history class in a completely different way.” The date was important for two versions of a class I taught. The first version was entitled “History of Architecture: Renaissance and Baroque.” The second version was ambiguously titled “History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism II.” In both versions of the course the historical trajectory had found its way to England via Inigo Jones and Christopher Wren by 1666.

  • Sculpting the Architectural Mind - Neuroscience and the Education of an Architect

    Brooklyn | Dates: 06 – 07 Mar, 2015
    In recent years, architects have been mining new research in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, object-oriented philosophy, and experimental biology for design concepts and for accounts of the new conditions of materiality. Architects borrow from these discourses to formulate and justify a wide range of design processes, especially digitally-driven ones. But we have failed to discuss how neuro-scientific knowledge can impact architectural pedagogy. A generation of architectural students has been trained in digital design tools, and younger students now generate nearly all of their design through digital media. What forms of design cognition has this change in representational systems yielded? Research from the sciences of the mind might help to unpack the implications of this shift.
