Time as the Immaterial Structure of Architectural Education


  • Mert Zafer Kara

Time is one of the lesser-addressed elements of the hidden curriculum, which fundamentally shapes architectural pedagogy not only in its temporal organization but also in the values, character, culture, motives, and even the architect figure it informs. The notion of time has culturally been assigned meanings and roles; a framework, a limitation, evaluation criteria, a commodity, a source, a route to follow, etc. Paradigm shifts such as the transition to a formal, universitarian system, the commodification of time as a marketing tool, or the reorganization of time-space through online education have raised the need to re-evaluate the often-invisible temporal practices of architectural education from a historical perspective.
