Taking its title from an exhibition of architectural sculptures at the Haywood Gallery, London in 2008 entitled Psycho Buildings, this paper addresses our capacities and responsibilities as educators to generate pedagogic spaces rather than simply to occupy them. Attention is paid to the spatial and aesthetic dimensions of knowledge production and exchange, exploring the possibilities for re/generating different relations of power and ways of knowing than those promoted by the Universities of Excellence (Readings,1996) with/in which we work. The paper argues that such re/generation and reinvention requires educational spaces which foreground the aesthetic, the experiential and the haptic: classrooms which can be sites of antagonism and dissensus, of risk and disorientation, and of pleasure and play. Drawing on spatial theory as well as theories and practices of pedagogic art, possible resources through which to imagine and create such spaces are examined.
