This week on Burning Down the House Curtis and guest host Roderick L. Knox sit down with Katy PurvÃance BasiÄ, founder of The Verb School, and architect Matt Arnold. This week's subject was the quality of high education being dished out in architecture schools across the nation. Katy started her own architecture school after her frustratingly hands-off experiences at Harvard; Matt Arnold describes similarly disheartening incidents during his time at Cooper-Union. Are students spending too much time in front of computer screens and not enough time learning with their hands, engaged in debate, and getting down and dirty? Tune in to hear these experts and educators weigh in on the places where our future architects sharpen their minds.
