THE PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR ARCHITECTURE BRUSSELS. Common Books, New York, 2016. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 152 pp. 17 x 12 cm. ISBN 9780988290617 In English.
Publisher's description: The Public School for Architecture Brussels seeks to establish an educational framework for public engagement within the realm of architecture. The school, which has branches worldwide, was initiated in Brussels in 2014 by common room in collaboration, dating back to 2007, with telic arts exchange (LA) and recyclart (NY). With support from the KU Leuven faculty of architecture, the self-organizing educational program in which curriculum and schedule are proposed by the general public via the school's website offers the general public the opportunity to negotiate public space and access architectural culture. Conceived following the first eight weeks of the program, this publication reflects on what an alternative education in architecture is and why it is necessary. Documents of activities that took place during the initial period and contributions from people outside the program provide a broad perspective on pedagogy and contextualize the public school in a larger discussion about architecture in the city.
