Idea Code 20100

What makes a good school great? Or a good community of practice great? For close to 50 years, architect and educator Leon van Schaik has pursued an answer to these questions. It is a venture that led him from the Architectural Association in London to the townships of apartheid South Africa, and finally to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), where he initiated a practice-based architecture research programme that is now globally renowned. In 'Building a Culture', Van Schaik traces the origin and development of design practice research at RMIT and his own journey into architecture and its teaching.
