Gem Barton: 'Universities are not in the business of producing faster horses'


The decade in which Henry Ford produced the first production line auto-mobile is the same decade that architectural education was formalised globally (1900's). Our 'educators' have had a century of opportunity to dismantle and restructure architectural education yet to this day it remains fuelled by outdated, outmoded, irrelevant, archaic and inevitably unsustainable indoctrinated views, your own a case in point albeit, somewhat perfunctory Henry Ford designed, marketed, engineered and made/invented an exclusive product into an affordable product for the masses. How do your students benefit and whom does your utopian architectural education provide for? Clinton Cole Director CplusC Architectural Workshop
