How is the redefinition of Europe affecting the Columbia GSAPP redesign debate? How is the redesign of Architecture education affecting future professional work in the already redefined Europe?
How does [Ctrl] ce work? [Ctrl] ce is intended to be a traveling exhibition of pieces that are part of an ongoing conversation. The issues on the table are processes of constitution, means of transformation, methods of representation, and drawing the boundaries of two institutions in the process of redefinition: Europa and Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP). The redefinition of Europe, through its constitutional text, its diffuse boundaries and the different levels of membership play a decisive role in the redefinition of the architect as an intellectual in the service of society. The redesign, both physical and conceptual, of these new institutions, new symbols and new situations are currently related to the architect, a character thinking his way through the uncertain future of the discipline and the globalized society he serves. [Ctrl] ce wants to go beyond its own limits. GSAPP's reinterpretation of GSAPP in relation to architectural education as a way of redefining the figure of the architect shifts from earlier digital concerns to new configurations, new machines, and new modes of production. It also redefines the institution of the school as a set of Experimental Units to expand the environment of the discipline, to find new configurations, new forms of professional practice, schooling, and new modes of production. It also redefines the institution of the school as a set of Experimental Units to expand the environment of the discipline, to find new configurations, new forms of professional, scholarly, technical and ethical practice. [Ctrl] ce wants to question these new limits.
