Architectural education is important for Asia to think about now, says conference organiser and CUHK professor Marisa Yiu, because the region's rapid urbanisation is creating many projects, from new towns in Hong Kong to huge housing complexes in India. It is raising issues about locality and sustainability, making it vital we reflect on how to train socially minded architects suited to meeting these challenges.
By gathering architectural educators from institutions operating in different contexts, the conference offered an opportunity for professors from Asia to see and learn from how other schools were approaching these issues.
"It was conceived as a clear way to just sort of slice through where 20 different schools are," says Yiu.
"One of the topics was Western versus Asian," says Yiu.
