Educating for the Future: for What and How?

A podcast on the future of architectural education and the environmental risks that lie ahead

In May 2023, the Danish Pavilion opened at the 13th Venice Biennale, featuring the exhibition "Coastal Imaginaries". Inside the pavilion, a diverse group of collaborators, professionals and architecture enthusiasts gathered for a focused discussion series on nature-based solutions and the coastscapes of the future. This podcast represents one of four recordings capturing these dialogues.

This episode documents  a conversation on the future of architectural education in the context of the green transition and the potential environmental risks that lie ahead. Ellen Braae, a professor specializing in landscape architecture theory and methodology, moderates the discussion. The participants include:

Pippo Ciorra, who is not only an architect but also a critic and educator. Since 2009, he has held the role of senior curator at Rome's MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st-Century Arts.

Anne Tietjen, an architect with a Ph.D., and a Professor specializing in Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, and Transformation. As of 2022, she serves as the Head of Studies for the MSc Landscape Architecture.  

Enrico Formato, an architect with a Ph.D., who is currently a Research Fellow at the University of Naples Federico II.

Alberto Innocenti, an architect with a Ph.D., who works as an Assistant Professor specializing in Urban Resilience at the University of Southern Denmark.
