As we navigate this unprecedented global emergency, ACSA will continue to provide our members with the information they need to help navigate these uncertain times. This page is intended to provide information on online discussions and events, networks, and tools for our members and will be updated frequently as new resources become available.
What resources would be most helpful? How can we best support or advocate architecture schools? Contact us with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following our April 10 online discussion “The Great Transformation: Redesigning the World Post COVID-19,” we invited participants to help create a network of faculty interested in a range of actions to create a more equitable, more just, and better designed world. Four articles from this network are now onlineon Medium about changes to higher education and the opportunities for designers resulting from a “panarchic” release. More opportunities are coming. Join the network now by emailing email@example.com.
With universities making fast decisions to move courses online, thousands of faculty are asking, what do we do now? ACSA is continuing to hold a series of open, web-based meetings to discuss next steps and share resources. Each one is being recorded and posted to this page.
ACSA has begun developing webinars featuring panels of speakers and question-and-answer sessions with the audience in response to contemporary issues facing higher education, both as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing. All past webinars are now available to watch online. Future webinars will be posted here as well.
The conference is intended to strengthen the INTERSECTION between academia and design practice, especially when it comes to research and innovation, focused on climate action and carbon management strategies.
