BAE-IAP First Faculty Roundtable Conference – September 2015


(The summary has been extracted from an article prepared for Archi Times during the year 2015. Ar. Farida Abdul Ghaffar has au¬thored the original article.)
The Third Faculty Training Workshop was hosted by the University of Lahore (UoL) in September 2015. The week long (5th thru 10th) Workshop aimed at engaging mid-career faculty from architectural schools across Pakistan.
The Workshop comprised of eight sessions and was co¬ordinated by Ar. Farida Abdul Ghaffar. It engaged eight eminent architects from Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore who conducted inter¬active sessions; each on a different aspect of the Studio Management. They include Ar. Tariq Hasan, Ar. Fauzia Qureshi, Ar. Tariq Alexander Qaiser, Ar. Arif Masoud, Ar. Fariha Amjad Ubaid, Ar. Sajjad Kausar, Dr. Noman Ahmed and Ar. Sikander Ajam Khan. Ar. Pervaiz Vandal - guest speaker - also shared his life-long experiences with the partic¬ipants. He encouraged and inspired them to pursue their career as academics in the field of architecture.
The young faculty was exposed to various innovative styles of preparing studio briefs; from pragmatic approaches to rather abstract ones. An intellectual discussion on the managerial role of a teacher in a studio under varying circumstances and different pedagogue/phi¬losophies helped the participants steer their studios effectively. The discussion enabled the participants to develop a scientific approach towards communicating the studio brief in a manner that allows the students to complete the project design in the stipulated time. The participants also availed the opportunity to share their techniques and develop a criteria/format for assessing student work. It was em¬phasized that the evaluation of studio work plays a vital role in the students’ progressive learning throughout the (five) years. The im-portance of evaluation was thus highlighted; as it not only deals the quantitative/ qualitative assessment of students’ work but identifies the potential, strength and weakness of each individual. The instruc¬tor must therefore maintain technical appraisals of each student and guide them to develop their innate ingenuity.
