The Architecture Foundation has created the first comprehensive survey of masters-level architectural design teaching in London.
The site aggregates all 88 MArch and Diploma studios from London's eleven architecture schools into a single searchable database. The project intends to connect cutting-edge thinking in architecture and design, making it easier for tutors or students to find and connect with people researching similar issues across institutional and geographic boundaries.
Phineas Harper, Deputy Director of the AF who led the creation of the database said: "We hope this site can help tutors and students foster new connections. All across the city amazing architecture tutors and students are exploring questions about the future of the capital and beyond but until now it has been impossible to see the breadth of that research prior to end of year exhibitions by which time the opportunity for collaboration and dialogue has passed. Even something as simple as two units who are looking at the same site coming together for a day of shared crits could be an eye-opening and productive experiment."
The foundation is planning to develop the project for the next academic year possibly expanding the database to include architecture schools outside of London and the UK. They have created a Frequently Asked Questions page with further information about the project on their website. The database can be found at:
