David Kohn and 2022 Future of Collaborations Elective

2022/23 Future of Collaboration

Seminar Course at the Architectural Association to extend David Kohn Architects' practice-based research

David Kohn is leading a second series of seminars exploring how architects have historically worked with other disciplines and stakeholders, questioning the role of collaboration in contemporary and future practices.

Using examples from medieval craft guilds to the arts and crafts movement, and from the Gesamtkunstwerk to community engagement, the elective will build an understanding of how shifting disciplinary boundaries, questions of authorship and knowledge acquisition have reflected societal changes. 

In the present context of environmental collapse, changes to the architectural profession and the prospect of artificial intelligence becoming increasingly prevalent in architectural decision making, the course questions what models of collaboration might prove most appropriate and adaptable for the future architect.
