As architecture acquired its modern identity as both a liberal art and a regulated profession, and as architectural theories and forms underwent radical transformations, the training of architects did not fundamentally change. The core activities of architectural students remain “Authority,” the study of treatises and theoretical works, “Observation,” the study of the built environment and its transcription by drawing; and “Atelier,” the learning process of design. Learning Architecture explores the activities that have continuously characterized the education of architects since the Renaissance.
The exhibition brings together some forty objects from the collections of the Université de Montréal, McGill University, Université du Québec à Montréal, and the CCA, produced by students of architecture or consulted by them while being trained in different national traditions.
Curated by students of architecture at the Université de Montréal, in collaboration with the Institut de recherche en histoire de l’architecture (IRHA).
