Reiseuni Report | Making Of European Architecture Dialogue  [CBU] [TLL] [LIS] [WRO] [INN] [SVQ] [TLV] [BER] [MRS] [KEL]Architectural education and the responsibility of the university in Europe need adjustment after the tendency toward specialization and equalization in recent decades and following the Bologna Process agreements. Our plural and democratic ideal of research-integrated education in the tradition of Wilhelm von Humbolt raises both challenges and chances. Important questions have to be answered: How do we generate architectural knowledge and work on site specific solutions in a glocal (global and local) mindset, together with students, professors and experts?
