title Between the Architectural and the Medial: Educating 21st century media-architects
source Digitizing Architecture: Formalization and Content [4th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2009) / ISBN 978-99901-06-77-0], Manama (Kingdom of Bahrain), 11-12 May 2009, pp. 89-101
summary The latter half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century have seen significant change in the definition of the terms ‘architecture’ and ‘architect’. Three fundamental factors affecting these changes have been the continual remoulding of global societal structures, the increasing importance of the reciprocal relationship between media and architecture and the growth of digital technologies in all areas of modern living. Through the rapid proliferation of new technologies, the extension of architecture into virtual spaces and the utilization of media as a tool for shaping experience, the lines between architecture and media have become blurred and new definitions of architectural and medial space have been defined. The use of the word medial in this paper means the relation of architecture to traditional and digital media. This paper describes how the Bauhaus University Weimar has responded to these developments. The paper gives an overview of the interdisciplinary 'MediaArchitecture' post-graduate master's programme as a collaboration between the Bauhaus' Faculty of Architecture and Faculty of Media and describes selected coursework and research projects.
