The Concrete Centre Studio Culture: Who needs it LTSN Centre for Education in the Built Environment (CEBE)

A Conference for Teachers in Schools of Architecture and Landscape

17-18th December 2003, St Catherine’s College, Oxford

Sponsored by The Concrete Centre and CEBE,
supported by the RIBA and the Landscape Institute





Studio based project courses are facing major changes generated from a wide range of sources. Such factors as the Higher Education Bill 2003, the move towards a unified e-learning strategy, DfES University funding levels, expanding syllabi, the rise of CAAD, patterns of study and work and the value of design in society will all effect Architecture and Landscape courses. A conference was held in Oxford in December 2003.

More than 60 delegates were in attendance at the conference, drawn mainly from the UK but also coming from Sweden and Israel. St Catherine’s College, designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen, and the St Cross Building by Sir Leslie Martin, both seminal buildings from the early 1960s, formed an ideal setting for this gathering of architects and design teachers.
