Is it a prison? An office block? A media center? School architecture is one of the field's greatest challenges, but, for political and financial reasons, rarely gets the attention it deserves. OASE 72 observes the unusual example of the Netherlands, where a combination of policy changes and new design challenges have recently bumped this issue up on the public agenda. The renewed interest springs in part from an issue of global concern: the new demands of today's information society. Schools

Architecture and urbanism seem to be »weak« disciplines, constantly struggling for a better understanding of their nature and disciplinary borders. The huge amount of metaphors appearing in the discourse of both not only reference to their creative nature but also indicate their weakness and the missing piece strengthening their own understanding: a definition of space for architecture and of city for urbanism. But using metaphors in this field implies a problem – though metaphors achieve

Pierre Bourdieu's theory of practice is widely regarded as among the most innovative and illuminating fruits of recent social thought. As evidence mounts that the ''spatial turn'' in the social sciences and humanities is no mere theoretical fad, but rather an enduring paradigm of social and cultural research, Bourdieu's status as a profoundly spatial thinker takes on a renewed importance. The Spatial Logic of Social Struggle: A Bourdieuian Topology focuses on Bourdieu's philosophy of space,

The contents underline the cultural and technical relevance of architecture to society. The Form of Form condenses the debate occasioned by the 4th Lisbon Architectural Triennale (2016), presenting to a wider international audience

''The young Italian architects are now out of the impasse and of their unwitting ennui. Or rather, they have begun to emerge and raise their gaze from the drawing board to observe the material and non-material phenomena occurring in the outside world in the meantime. In the concrete material world of the Italian cities and landscape, sudden radical transformations have effected the whole universe to which architectural, planning and urban knowledge must be applied.

There is no period in the history of the Netherlands which excites such emotion, resistance, or aversion as the decade of the 1970s. Following in the wake of the democratization wave of 1968, some regard the 1970s as a period when pluralism was possible and desirable at all levels. For others, the crowning moment of 1968 degenerated into a quagmire of public consultation and a culture of always inconclusive committee meetings. The 70s were either hip and groundbreaking, or dogmatic and rigid.
