lessons: tupker\risselada: a double portrait of dutch architectural education 1953\2003
This book is about the educational practice of two teachers of architecture, Max Risselada and Hans Tupker. They represent a new kind of teacher that came into being along with the wave of democracy that washed over the educational institutes in the late 60s and early 70s of the last century. Risselada’s and Tupker’s teaching is not the derivative of their architectural practice. On the contrary, they belong to the first generation of professional teachers. This new figure of the professional teacher is characterised on the one hand by an independent authority with regard to the professors and the governors, and on the other hand by the equal collaboration with students on organising and defining one’s own education.
