Architectural (De)Schooling: Ana Miljački x Sarah Hirschman

June 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MSK

These days architecture schools are trying to figure out how to conduct lectures and seminars, studios and crits online. But it is just as well a test of the very foundations of architectural education. Do we need architecture schools? Do we need them to change? Are they capable of change, to prepare to deal with this crisis and the next to come?
This summer MARCH Architecture School invites educators from schools around the world to discuss the past, present and possible future of architectural education. It is a series of online conversations, which will bring together professionals, free to determine the direction of their discussion. They are coming from different countries, schools, generations, bringing their various views, experiences, expectations.

Our next meeting in the Architectural DeSchooling in the Age of Quarantine series will bring together Ana Miljački (MIT Department of Architecture) and Sarah Hirschman (UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design), who has been critically exploring — together and separately — the boundaries of and the rules that govern the architectural discipline and academia.

Ana Miljački’s Critical Broadcasting Lab ( has mounted and broadcast a series of experiments on this issue. In the latest one, the Play Room, participants play specially designed board and card games dedicated to the contemporary topics in architecture, very often discussed in schools: starchitects, gentrification, urban development.

In the Un/Fair Use project, Ana Miljački and Sarah Hirschman investigated the mechanics of copying, appropriation, and copyright protection in architecture. Copying and reproduction are as much a part of architecture as the expectation of novelty. Where are the lines between plagiarism, parody, criticism?

Ana Miljački and Sarah Hirschman pedagogical experiments aim to enable students of architecture to study and challenge the disciplinary apparatus.
