The What is a School? (of Architecture, Landscape, Art, and Urbanism) symposium will take place in Principal Hall at the Daniels Building, the new home of the Daniels Faculty. This event will bring together a rich array of educators, theorists, historians, and practitioners to address questions surrounding the design of learning spaces, including:

—What kind of a pedagogical instrument is a school of architecture/design and what role do its physical spaces and architecture play in its pedagogies and research?
—What is the contemporary role and relevance of a general education in design?
—What might be the agency and reach of the architecture/design school, beyond the school or university?
—How can an architecture/design school be both a place where ideas are cultivated over time, and where they are subject to continuous experimentation?
—How do schools of architecture/design navigate the changing political and intellectual landscape of the research university?
