Meejin Yoon and Eric Höweler share their experiences as teachers of architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Höweler talks about the learning process, semester by semester, that his students undergo and presents several projects they have done. He speaks about the methodology used by him, which essentially exposes students to real-life scenarios applied to their careers.

On the other hand, Meejin Yoon describes a few courses taught at MIT and explains the educational development of  her students. She also speaks about the projects her students have done.

Both teachers comment on the importance of integrating various processes and techniques in the architectural world and explain the influence technology has on it, presently.
