South North: A Festival of the Minds

Exploring Education in Design and Planning in African Schools of Planning and Architecture: A Bottoms-Up Approach Convened by Dr Finzi Saidi, Acting Head of School at the GSA, this webinar brings together academics from African universities to share their teaching experiences in architecture and planning disciplines. The aim is to bring to the fore teaching and learning strategies that academics employ in ensuring meaningful and responsive learning for their students. We believe that by talking about lived experiences of academics we can ‘unearth’ innovative teaching strategies that provide important lessons for transforming the curriculum.

    Architecture enables us to simultaneously reflect on the past and forecast new futures. Even at its most understated, architecture inherently looks forward.
