About This Episode

Online learning is becoming increasingly relevant for young architects looking to improve their design and practice skills in architecture. As the gap between school and practice widens, e-course platforms such as Eduwik, Skillshare and Youtube become complementary ways to learn.  

In this episode, I discuss with Vikas Pawar, founder of the global architecture platform Rethinking the Future and Eduwik (an e-course platform for young architects) about this opportunity and how we see education and practice of architecture progress in the next few years to come.

We also gave advice about how you can also start similiar learning and content platforms like ARCHLOGBOOK and Eduwik.
