Walls That Teach: On the Architecture of Youth Centres.
Pietsch, Susanne and Andreas Muller.
Walls That Teach: On the Architecture of Youth Centres.
At the inaugural festivities of the Moscow Palace of Young Pioneers in 1962, a Soviet news agency enthusiastically reported, In this house, the walls will teach! Propagandistic, yes, but this prescriptive attitude about the potential of architecture to shape modern life was implicit in much of the architecture of the 20th century. This collection of 12 essays and 24 case studies from leading architects and academics examines the architecture and programming of mid-century youth centers across Europe, from Utrecht to Manchester. The organization of these centers around leisure activities partially concealed their educational (and ultimately political) goals: their pedagogical power could be found not only in their physical design, but also in the way they were used and inhabited by the children themselves. Contributors include Tom Avermaete, Peter Blundell Jones, Jennifer Mack, Susan Reid, Sue Robertson, Piet Vollaard and many others.
