How can architectural history and the design studio be integrated? This is a

question that 15 teachers of history working in design schools in the UK attempt

to answer in essays collected by Hardy and Teymur in their book, Architectural

History and the Design Studio.1 The 15 authors, with certain provisos, all agree

that integration is desirable, but their various solutions to the problem of how it

might be achieved are divergent and unconvincing. The divergence in the

proffered panaceas for reintegration mirrors the different ways the authors view

the proper role of architectural history in the design schools.
