    The Organizer's Guide to Architecture Education serves as a timely call-to-action for transforming architecture education to meet the monumental environmental and social challenges of our time.

    Written by a collective of eight educators, practitioners, and organizers and structured in three parts, the book considers organizing across four scales of architecture education and reorients architecture toward stewarding the planetary commons. It speaks to students, faculty, and administrators in architecture schools, as well as professional architects and built environment practitioners, who recognize the need to expand and decenter the discipline. Readers will gain critical understandings and skills for reimagining architectural pedagogy, practice, and relations to power structures. Empowered by this knowledge, readers will be motivated to contribute actively to and drive systemic change within the field.

    Illuminated with how-to methods—from power mapping to conversation tactics—and case study precedents, the book catalyzes a collective redefinition of architecture as a vital player in building a socially just and ecologically regenerative future
