ICSA 2025 | Special Session

Global climate crisis, resource depletion, and biosphere integrity challenge the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry in unprecedented ways. Parallel to this, new technologies, materials, and design approaches emerge, offering opportunities for an enhanced architectural vocabulary. While an array of circular design strategies is discussed within the research community and new models tackling resource scarcity emerge in practice, education is yet to adjust. Design for architectural structures demands change, calling for new skills and competences that have yet to be integrated in AEC education. What will the future hold? How to deal with uncertainties? And how to integrate this in design studios? This session gathers contributions that present innovative educational practices in formal or informal learning environments, as well as reflective papers on the impeding pedagogical shifts.
