"Just like anyone else, each teacher has his or her own point of view on a wide range of issues. From culture to history to economics, and even in the pure sciences, teachers have a personal position coloured by personal and political interpretation. As such they are like unwitting dictators, inadvertently affecting the as yet unformed minds of their students. Since teachers themselves are unlikely to change this state of affairs, it is up to students themselves to pay careful attention to their own learning.

During this week-long workshop you will learn what an ideology is and how to escape its influence, how ideology is (or was) connected to education; how places of study, including architecture schools and universities, affect how we think; and what makes a modern university teacher – dictator, guru, master, or a researcher equal with his disciples?"

cityofsound: Journal: Fabrica
"a type of school, or studio, or commercial practice, or research centre. Fabrica, hovering between all these things yet resisting the urge to fall into becoming any one of them, is perhaps genuinely without parallel. This makes it a little tricky to explain, but this ability to avoid pigeonholes is also to its credit."

"hybrid organisation—part communications research centre…but also part arts and design school, part think-thank, part studio. My kind of place."

"While I might occasionally characterise Fabrica as the pugnacious upstart, or startup, whose agility might challenge the established institutions, it’s clear we also have a lot to learn from the likes of the exemplary creative centres like the RCA, and from Paul in particular. His experience across the Design Museum, Cooper Hewitt and the RCA will be invaluable, and he’s beginning to draw together a great advisory board. Watch that space. I’m also exploring various newer models for learning environments, from Strelka and CIID to MIT Media Lab and School of Everything, alongside the centres of excellence like the RCA and others. My father and mother, more of an influence on me than perhaps even they realise, were both educators and learning environments and cultures may well be in my DNA, to some degree."

"…the other idea that I’m incredibly interested in pursuing at Fabrica is that of the trandisciplinary studio."

"With this stew of perspectives at hand, we might find project teams that contain graphic designers, industrial designers, neuroscientists, coders, filmmakers, for instance. Or product design, data viz, sociology, photography, economics, architecture and interaction design, for instance. These small project teams are then extremely well-equipped to tackle the kind of complex, interdependent challenges we face today, and tomorrow. We know that new knowledge and new practice—new ideas and new solutions—emerges through the collision of disciplines, at the edges of things, when we’re out of our comfort zone. Joi Ito, at the MIT Media Lab, calls this approach “anti-disciplinary”."

"And living in Treviso, a medieval walled Middle European city, our new home gives me another urban form to explore, after living in the Modern-era Social Democratic Nordic City of Helsinki, the Post-Colonial proto-Austral-Asian Sprawl of Sydney, the contemporary globalised city-state of London, and the revolutionary industrial, and then post-industrial, cities of the north of England."

Location - Strelka Institute for media, architecture and design
"Strelka is located on the grounds of the former Red October chocolate factory, on Bolotny Island – two steps away from the Kremlin, the notorious House on the Embankment, and Gorky Park. The Institute occupies what once were the factory’s garages that up until 2009 housed the ARTStrelka cultural centre.

Strelka comprises four studios, a lecture hall, a media library, a large courtyard amphitheatre, and Strelka Bar with a rooftop summer terrace."

Vision - Strelka Institute for media, architecture and design
"…an institution that would be a stock exchange for human capital, a place shaping a flow of creative energy. It would transform Russia’s physical & social environment, with cities being the platform for that change.

…a multifunctional institution. Not only a place of study, but a cradle for ideas & meanings, strategies & actions.

…a non-profit organization aimed at generating knowledge, producing new ideas & making them come true. Its lecture halls & studios provide free tuition for international young specialists with backgrounds in architecture, design, social sciences, etc. Its courtyard hosts open lectures, conferences and film screenings…

…an educational centre that is open to the world and ready to share. What happens here spills out into social exchange.

The output of the institute is multidimensional. It includes graduates and their projects. It involves a growing network of creativity. But, most importantly, it helps shape the reality of tomorrow."

Andreas Gjertsen and Rune Stangeland from TYIN tegnestue Architects: “We are trying to start a dialogue” - Strelka Institute for media, architecture and design
"With the help of Andreas Gjertsen and Rune Stangeland from TYIN tegnestue Architects Strelka started to build its first objects. Curators of the workshop “Public space as a tool for dialogue” talked to us about their experience of constructing in Moscow and explained conclusions and observations which they came to during the last week."

"You see that the most difficult sites are those that nobody owns — in-between spaces between public and private — because nobody cares about them. And that is precisely the issue which we are discussing now: how to use this unused space in a way that would benefit people in the area. You do not have to be a proud inhabitant you actually have to feel that this is your area. Only after that you start caring about what happens around. It is supercomplex and seems to be very slow work."
