Rural Studio and Jeremy Till: Architecture and Locality

Andrew Freear, Director of Auburn University, Alamba’s highly influential design and build programme, Rural Studio, and Jeremy Till, Dean of Westminster School of Architecture, discuss architecture’s social responsibilities and strategies of bridging the gap between theory and the real world.

"If architecture is going to nudge, cajole, and inspire a community to challenge the status quo into making responsible changes, it will take the subversive leadership of academics and practitioners who keep reminding students of the profession's responsibilities."
