Research project
Open-Air Education, research project, RISD, WIP

Funded by the RISD 2050 Fund AY22-23 and PDF AY23-24.
This pilot project explores the future of open-air arts education at RISD, through the research and design of the outdoor classroom. Looking beyond makeshift tents and mechanical ventilators that mark our pandemic era, it aims to stoke the architectural imagination for transitioning into a future where healthy studio environments, outdoor pedagogies, and collective rights to air and shade become essential to the academic experience.

This project connects histories and futures of open-air architecture in regions such as New England, France, and the Netherlands, as well as from around the world. Instead of claiming to be exhaustive or  canonical in any way, this tapestry acts more like a conversation starter: to aid the RISD community in imagining possibilities for a
more open-air arts education.
