While the architectural field has changed more in the last 30 years than in the previous 3,000 – thanks to the rapid acceleration of globalization and the convulsions of the market economy – architectural education has mostly failed to keep pace. The Strelka Institute, in Moscow, proposes a different way of looking at architecture: not only for the general improvement of design, but with the intention of introducing research as the most essential basis of architectural education. AMO develops an educational program with Strelka to address a range of issues that are pertinent worldwide, and particularly urgent in Russia.
