Thresholds in Architectural Education provides a comprehensive Thresholds in Architectural Education provides a comprehensive presentation of the various forms of interaction that exist within the non-formal, informal and formal learning experiences of architectural students, studying the discipline at higher education institutions.
By investigating these learning experiences, this book explores multiple issues, aimed at a wider debate on the current impasse in architectural education and the existing divide between research, education and professional practice. It suggests a re-evaluation of the boundaries between these various fields, in search of areas where the cross professionalism of the practice and the inter and cross-disciplinarity of education can strike a delicate balance. The focus is on the ‘in between layers’ occurring between these fields, as they are considered instrumental in innovating current architectural education.

This book illustrates the wealth of ideas and experiments inspired by this topic. The intention is not to give solutions but instead to spark debate on the sensitive design of architectural curricula, allowing for the redefinition or creation of original learning environments.
