Salama, Ashraf. New Trends in Architectural Education: Designing the Design Studio. Raleigh, N.C.: Tailored Text, 1995.
New Trends in Architectural Education presents a wide range of innovative concepts and practical methods for teaching architectural design, together with examples of different studio teaching. It traces the roots of architectural education, several disparate ideas, and strategies of design teaching practices including the Ecole Des Beaux-Arts and the Bauhaus.
This book offers a comparative analysis of contemporary trends that are committed to shaping and identifying studio objectives and processes. It explores different aspects of studio teaching and what impact they have on attitudes, skills, methods, and tools of designers.
New Trends in Architectural Education calls for a fresh look at design education in architecture, where the author proposes an approach within which architectural educators can envision and evaluate the needs of future architects and the type of education that satisfies those needs.
