School of Environment and Architecture is happy to open up discussion from its recently published "First Questions" to larger audiences, in a book reading and discussion organized by Academy of Architecture this Thursday. The event is open to all.

On the occasion of completion of the first five years of School of Environment & Architecture, the institution has put together essays on architectural pedagogy. In its first five years, SEA undertook a series of experiments in rearticulating architectural education towards making it relevant. This book is a compilation of these experiments and articulations. The publication is resourceful for architectural practitioners, educators and students who are interested in meaningfully intervening and engaging with the built environment around.
