Re: architectural educaton

As long as problem based learning method involves experienced persons,
not necessarily architects, in the solving of a "real" building type
problem, it can be valuable. Just talking form without content by
inexperienced critics is not very valuable to the professional design
student. Also, the question arises about desk crits vs. reviews in
this process of learning. What are the values of each? Is the work
done in a studio setting, or is it done amongst friends outside of a
traditionally school-provided studio? Can a reviews-of-work be valuable
for learning when the project work is done anywhere other than the studio?

The Australian method of learning [teaching?] is a valuable one.
