Relevance and Revelation: A Conversation with Preston Scott Cohen, Mack Scogin, and Thom Mayne

An enlightened, and light-hearted, exchange among Preston Scott Cohen, Gerald M. McCue Professor in Architecture, Mack Scogin, Kajima Professor in Practice of Architecture, and surprise guest Thom Mayne. Scogin kicks off the conversation with a short clip featuring a popular comedian from the 1980’s tap-dancing, relating it back to pedagogy at the GSD. A revealing conversation on the relevancy of design education and the true nature of its value follows.
