Innovation in teaching and learning methods: Integrating sustainability subjects in the architectural design process
EDP Austral de Chile University, Faculty of Architecture and Arts Institute of Architecture and Urbanism, Campus Isla Teja, IV Región de los Ríos, Valdivia 5090000, Chile
Architectural training has always been linked to two opposed and complementary processes: creative thinking and linear/technical thinking. Nowadays, the training process of an architect is usually based on an experimental design studio, which is complemented by the formal teaching of theoretical and technical subjects. This system is based on the idea that it will produce a comprehensive professional who is capable of achieving creative, appropriate and viable solutions. However, this teaching method can carry hidden difficulties that may hinder the development of architecture students to their full potential. This article will inform on the methodology and results of applying an innovative method of teaching and learning architecture. This method aims at maximising the capacity of students to integrate their creative and technical competencies in order to increase the quality of work of future architects.
