Article summary:

1. Most architecture curricula in the United States focus on expunging cultural preconceptions and promoting a reductive conceptual basis for exploring architectural issues.

2. Beginning design exercises in architecture schools emphasize the syntactical and phenomenal aspects of design over the semantic, drawing inspiration from minimal art.

3. The "kit-of-parts problem" was a common introductory studio problem that encouraged students to think about spatial relations and prioritize the principles of architecture as an autonomous discipline. This problem was influenced by Rudolf Wittkower's analysis of Palladio's villas and Colin Rowe's essay on the mathematics of the ideal villa.
