Giancarlo De Carlo’s Concept of Architecture – a Powerful and Inclusive Tool for Thinking about Educational Space
Keywords:Giancarlo De Carlo, Architecture, Architect, Education, Schools
This paper explores Giancarlo De Carlo’s concept of architecture as discussed in his writing and argues that it offers a particularly inclusive way of thinking about educational space. Drawing also on the work of Mieke Bal for whom concepts can act as common languages across disciplines, the paper shows how De Carlo’s “architecture” achieves openness through expanding the categories of “designer” and “project” and so might be especially helpful as a common language among architects and educationalists. Illustrating some of the contemporary challenges facing education as well as De Carlo’s personal interests in schools and universities, the paper applies the architect’s concepts to open up discussion about the future of schooling.
