A Recommended Documentary: Archiculture

Have you ever been sucked into the Youtube vortex and found yourself just tumbling deeper and deeper into the depths of the abyss? I have! Though at least these days I try to stay within the realm of the useful.

When you have a few minutes, go check out Archiculture.

Perhaps you’re interested in applying for architecture school, are enrolled, or have emerged out of the other side still alive, you may find this little vid rather interesting. I know I did! It brought back all kinds of memories – the good, the bad, the psychotic, but most importantly it reminded me of why I loved architecture school.

Please note that I am in no way responsible for any part of this film. I simply thought it provides a unique view into the world of the architectural studio in academia and thought it might be a useful Studio Crumb to share! With that said, for your information, the caption of the video reads:

Published on Dec 17, 2014

Archiculture takes a thoughtful, yet critical look at the architectural studio. The 25-minute film offers a unique glimpse into the world of studio-based, design education through the eyes of a group of students finishing their final design projects. Interviews with leading professionals, historians and educators help create crucial dialog around the key issues faced by this unique teaching methodology and the built environment these future architects will create.
