Emerging Practices in Architectural Pedagogy
Accommodating an Uncertain Future
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after July 19, 2021
Emerging Practices in Architectural Pedagogy explores the emergent techniques in architectural education that are helping to bridge the gap between the institutional setting and working practice. It demonstrates how teaching and learning can, and should, be directed towards tackling the real-world problems that students will encounter within their professional careers. Architectural and design practitioners are becoming less specialised, they are embracing cross-disciplinary connections and practical problem-solving. Architecture and design schools must align their teaching to reflect this changing world, and evolve from a fact-based acquisition process to a participatory method of learning.
This book uses an extended case-study format to examine large-scale issues. Each chapter represents a specific mode of practice, which is linked to the wider debate on architectural and design pedagogy; this includes collaborative workshops and interventions, issues connected to sustainability and climate change, responses to rapid urbanisation, and, the creation of collaborative relationships across disciplines.
The book has an international perspective, with contributions from the UK, USA and Singapore, and includes a timely discussion on teaching in a remote climate. This book will be an invaluable resource for engaged academics and teaching practitioners interested in playing a key role in the future development of the architectural profession.

Laura Sanderson’s work focuses upon the process of analysing and understanding the nature and qualities of place, in order to develop new buildings and other elements within the environment of the already built. As the Atelier Leader for Continuity in Architecture, she has led funded projects in settlements around Manchester; producing research outputs from projects in Bollington (2016), Bakewell (2017), Rochdale (2019), Shrewsbury (2020), and this year in Bradford. These outputs include exhibitions, articles, interactive children’s projects, book chapters and built interventions. Laura co-curated UnDoing (2019), an exhibition at the radical independent Castlefield Gallery (with Sally Stone), featuring the work of a number of international artists and architects, exploring how buildings, places and artefacts are re-used, reinterpreted and remembered. These themes will be further explored in the forthcoming book ‘Remember, Reveal, Construct: Reflections upon the Contingency, Usefulness and Emotional Resonance of Architecture, Buildings and Context’ (with Sally Stone 2022). Another imminent project is a collaboration with Luca Csepely-Knorr and the Institute of Place Management examining the High Streets of the District Centres of Manchester. Laura has published a number of reflections on her pedagogic approach including the work in Continuity in Architecture, the Atelier Zero installation and the MSA Events Programme (with Vicky Jolley), which has produced over 200 diverse live projects over the past decade. Laura Sanderson is an Architect, a Senior Lecturer at Manchester School of Architecture, Year Leader for the Master of Architecture Programme and Atelier Leader for Continuity in Architecture.
For more than thirty years Sally Stone has been designing, discussing, formulating ideas, and writing about Architecture, Building Reuse and Interiors. She recently published ‘UnDoing Buildings: Adaptation and Cultural Memory’, and she is also the co-author of a number of other books including ‘ReReadings Volumes 1 & 2’, ‘From Organisation to Decoration’, and the series: ‘Interior Architecture: An Approach. She co-curated the exhibition ‘UnDoing’ at the radical independent Castlefield Gallery in the centre of Manchester, which explored the disconnected yet similar approaches that artist and architects take to the already existing (interior) environment (with Laura Sanderson). ‘Remember Reveal Construct: Reflections upon the Contingency, Usefulness and Emotional Resonance of Architecture, Buildings and Context’ (with Laura Sanderson) will be published in 2022. Sally is the co-recipient of the UK Government sponsored Heritage Heroes Award in recognition of her work to save the Preston Bus Station. Sally Stone directs the atelier Continuity in Architecture, and leads the Master of Architecture programme at the Manchester School of Architecture.
