Abstract

The architectural design studio is an anomaly in the contemporary research university. Its underlying theories of professional knowledge and teaching are at odds with those of other university-based professional schools. This represents an opportunity: the studio has much to teach other professional schools on the basis of its traditions of education through coaching and learning-by-doing. On the other hand, what is the place of applied science in the studio? This question triggers a more general issue about science education for the professions. I have suggested how teaching what scientists do, rather than their research results, could influence science teaching in the studio. When considered this way, scientific research and architectural design bear a much closer family resemblance to each other.
