The second lecture in the series was given by Professor Beatriz Colomina, Professor of Architecture and Founding Director of the Program in Media and Modernity at Princeton University, USA, on Thursday 20th November 2014 in the Sculpture Court at ECA.

Entitled Towards a Radical Pedagogy, the lecture looked at how pedagogical experiments played a crucial role in shaping architectural discourse and practice in the second half of the twentieth century, asking “Is anything similar happening today?”.

Colomina has written extensively on questions of architecture and media, and her work has been published in over 25 languages.

While at ECA, she took part in a postgraduate research symposium for PhD students and their supervisors, with presentations by Ana Bonet Miro, Liam Ross, Jason O’Shaughnessy, Richard McClary, Rocio von Jungenfeld and Tiago Torres Campos, and an open discussion for staff chaired by Professor Mark Dorrian.
