This paper captures the keynote speech given by Neelkanth Chhaya at the aae 2014 conference in which he explored architectural education as a search for 'liveness'. Here he discusses the idea of an alive architecture and explores the qualities of an alive process that might lead to such an outcome, drawing implications for 'liveness' in learning. Drawing on an understanding of the role of the Bard, the paper frames the making of an alive architecture as a social process involving open-ended, joyful searching by a community of seekers. The paper suggests that if we are to bring life to works of architecture, we may need to redefine the role of architects and their position as professionals.
