The merits of higher education have come under increasing scrutiny in recent decades, criticised for training students too narrowly and for ignoring the necessity for professional skill sets and collaborative, interdisciplinary ways of working. Current models for producing and transmitting knowledge are therefore being questioned. This book revisits a radical attempt at rethinking the mandate of higher education through mass media. Eight episodes written by architect and educator Joaquim Moreno offer a close reading of the course A305, History of Architecture and Design 1890–1939, taught via television and radio broadcasts which aired on BBC in the late 1970s and early ’80s.
