    Abstract:
    The necessity to combine sustainable methods in architectural and urban design and democratization calls for a shift from technical to the socio-technical perspectives within the field of architecture and urbanism, which is related to a need to reshape pedagogical agendas. At the center of the paper is the conviction that this endeavor of combining social and environmental equity in data-driven societies goes hand in hand with the intention of placing emphasis in critical thinking, self-reflection, social awareness, imagination, and activism in architectural education. The necessity to combine sustainable methods in architectural and urban design and democratization calls for a shift from technical to the socio-technical perspectives within the field of architecture and urbanism which is related to a need to reshape pedagogical agendas. At the center of the paper is the conviction that this endeavor of combining social and environmental equity in data-driven societies goes hand in hand with the intention of placing emphasis in critical thinking self-reflection social awareness imagination and activism in architectural education. To shed light on the role of cosmopolitan citizenship in reshaping architectural education the paper examines how “cosmopolitics” as ecology of practices can help us reinvent the relationship between individual subjectivity and collective subjectivity in architectural education. The paper also intends to examine two issues: firstly, the mutation of the status of the architectural artefact because of the fact that the form is generated through the use of digital tools; secondly, the implications of the possibility of real-time data visualisation for the reconceptualization of the notion of spatiality.
