The university is now on air, broadcasting modern architecture.

Joaquim Moreno

This book, co-published by the Canadian Centre for Architecture and Jap Sam Books, examines a key experiment by The Open University to mobilize new media environments for distance and adult education. Eight episodes written by Joaquim Moreno, conversations with Tim Benton, Nick Levinson, Adrian Forty, Joseph Rykwert, and Stephen Bayley, and contributions by Nick Beech, Laura Carter, Ben Highmore, and Joseph Bedford, offer a close reading of the course A305, History of Architecture and Design 1890–1939, which was taught through television and radio broadcasts, aired on the BBC between 1975 and 1982.
