Andrew Brody`s teaching philosophy can be summed up as follows: designers in training must study both theoretical constructions and the body of architectural knowledge and skills, but, they must also experiment. They must be encouraged to take risks, plunging in even when they are not fully confident in their knowledge or skills. The design process is a conversation, and is often ambiguous, and successful tactics can be amorphous. Being flexible in thinking and approach, and also persistent in the pursuit of your vision, will help to create holistic, grounded architecture. Nothing is more rewarding than when a student's research, concepts, and aesthetics come together and form a unique and rich design.
