Education
In looking at Education this issue, we cast the net wide, selecting campuses and schools in Asia that broadly speak of sustainability, from resource conservation to synergy with climate and nature. Does their design reinforce what is then taught in the classroom? In most cases, we cannot be sure (but we hope it does).
 
The sole union of design and curriculum that we could find is the FuturArc Showcase: Green School, Bali. Its cofounder, John Hardy, and director, Ronald Stones OBE, are also subjects of The FuturArc Interview.
 
We have also invited professors from several universities to tell us how they have (re)fashioned curriculum around sustainability. The Main Feature is a collage of perspectives from some of the top institutions in the region. It is prefaced with a contribution from Robert and Brenda Vale at the University of Wellington, New Zealand, who have been long-time advocates for a rethink of design pedagogy.
