The contribution of creative education has never been more important. Yet in the U.K. and the U.S., design schools are losing their pre-eminence as new centres–places such as Singapore, Eindhoven, Berlin and China, where design schools have been or are becoming more important–for design emerge. Is the existing approach toward teaching in the U.K. and the U.S. dated? Or is there a bigger global shift occurring?
So far there are great comments from Michael Maharam, principal of Maharam, designer and educator Constantin Boym, and others, covering a variety of subjects–from the constraints that face the United States system of design education, to the new and innovative models of education that can be found at the design schools RISD and Design Academy Eindhoven.
