In an old factory in Los Angeles, some people have gotten together and created an architecture school that costs nothing to attend.
The Container Yard in downtown LA is a new concept for architecture education. The barriers created by costing too much for many students have been brought down. This is not a replacement for full-time graduate program – it is just for a couple of months this summer.
From June 1 – July 15, this school offers an architecture curriculum to students that is full of “free inquiry, free discourse, and free debate.”
The building is a former factory building of Japanese sweets. Now there will be architecture education as well as other arts activities. The hope is to create a creative hub integrating the arts and commerce. It seems like a unique opportunity to have people share and ignite curiosity and ideas.
