Abstract

This paper explores the potential concealed in the gaps of the current architectural education structure through participation in the 2015 World Architecture Festival Student Charrettes. Central to the discussion and integral to the working process is the role of dialogue that emphasises individual learning, and the cultivation of an open system
that encourages students to assume authorship, question and shape the outcomes of design teaching. Consequently, this non-linear and nonhierarchical rhizomic approach to communicating and learning is discussed alongside attitudes to alternative design education and advocates the transformation of latent transitional moments into notable opportunities in the new normal.
