Authors’ Comment

2,14 Types of Architecture Schools is a collection of essays that attempts an– heterogeneous, contemporary- x-ray of architectural education, both at a global but especially at a national level. The purpose of the book is to open up the subject towards the public, to present a contextualized overview of the subject, to provide theories and concepts for those of us interested in taking the discussion to a more fundamental but also operational level.
The civil society in Romania is becoming more defined as an entity and one of the important points on the agenda is the quality of built environment and the preservation of heritage. The educational environment should be ready to propose an agenda that will provide answers and future directions to these challenges. We hope that the book will help educators meet this challenge.
2,14 Types of Architecture Schools is made of two unequal, but complementary parts. The first part brings together several essays on the topic of the meaning and larger themes of architectural education in Romania starting from its origins, at the end of the XIXth century up to present day. The second part is a collection of shorter opinion essays - a genuine esquisse on the theme of the ideal school of architecture in Romania.
