Architecture for the Masses Architecture for the Masses

Architecture for the Masses






How to engage people with buildings"? In the early 1970s, this question guided a team of architectural historians and educators to devise a pioneering program for the United Kingdom?s Open University, an experiment with mass education that is still ongoing. Forty years later, the question is still relevant, and even more so for an institution like the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Since the built environment is experienced by everyone, it follows that architecture should thus be one of the more ?democratic? disciplines. And yet architectural education has paradoxically remained generally closed in on itself, organized around professional elites and academic historians that rarely dialogue between themselves and even less with a broader audience. While there have been attempts to rethink or challenge traditional ways of teaching design, in both architecture schools and more alternative practices, such as the Women?s School of Planning and Architecture, they have been fairly limited. The University Is Now on Air: Broadcasting Modern Architecture, the CCA?s current exhibition on the Open University?s course on modern architecture, is thus a welcome opportunity to think about how to reach a wider audience for both universities and institutions such as the CCA itself. But it also challenges common thinking about the production and diffusion of knowledge.
Still from a filmed interview between Joaquim Moreno and Nick Levinson, discussing production aspects of the A305 course. Film by Shahab Mihandoust, London, 2017. Curator Joaquim Moreno and his team have created a focused exhibition, building on archival material from A305 History of Architecture and Design, 1890?1939, a course offered between 1975 and 1982 by the University; and from interviews in which four key protagonists in the design on the course reflect on its creation and impact. The exhibition design by APPARATA acknowledges the focus on popular outreach of the Open University by suggesting a domestic setting in the exhibition?s central rooms where mid-century chairs and sofas allow visitors to watch the course?s video material, originally broadcasted by the BBC, on vintage televisions.
While not subtle, the set-up invites the slow discovery of the course?s content, in a similar way to how it was originally intended. In the surrounding rooms, the exhibition explains how the material was developed and presents the extent of physical material produced for this ?on-air? program, as well as the impact of the course on both British students and international educators and architects. This parallel presentation of a history of the Open University?s experiment and of a history of modern architecture is one of the successes of the exhibition. While the exhibition obviously aims at architects and educators with an advanced knowledge of 20th-century architecture, it also makes available?both in the exhibition and on the CCA?s YouTube channel?material produced to explain modern architecture ...
