Conference: The Sixties and the Education of the Architect
15th - 16th May 2018, Cité de l´architecture and Ensa Paris-Malaquais, Paris, France
DATE: 15/5/2018
"This international conference accompanies the exhibition May 68, Architecture Also which will be held at the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine, from May 14 to October 17, 2018 (Caroline Maniaque, Eléonore Marantz, Jean-Louis Violeau, curators). The aim is to investigate from an international perspective how architecture was taught in the 1960s and 1970s. This is a period that in France and in many other countries in the West, was marked by radical institutional upheaval and social, political and pedagogic changes.

This conference follows on from two workshops. The first was held on 16th and 17th June 2016 at the Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture Paris-Belleville and the Institut national d’histoire de l’art. It focused on the building of schools of architecture. The second was held on 20th and 21st October 2016, on news systems of education introduced in schools of architecture in France and elsewhere (Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine and Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture, Normandie)."
