EDUCATING THE COSMOPOLITAN ARCHITECT

June 21st, 2023

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture(ACSA) and the European Association for Architectural Education(EAAE) are pleased to announce the third, biennial joint Teachers Conference being hosted by the Iceland University of the Arts (IUA).

The conference will take place June 22-24, 2023, in Reykjavik, Iceland, and will explore the spaces and pedagogies for developing notions of cosmopolitan citizenship. It is driven by the urgent need to clarify the societal mission of architectural education in a time of grand challenges amidst a climate crisis, social inequality, rapid urbanization, pandemics, and wars that operate at a global scale and affect all of us.

The conference aims to focus on the capacity of architectural education to respond to these challenges while creating conditions for students and educators to locally engage as active citizens in their communities.
