It is time for the next ASN event – The Challenges of ‘Future Cities’ For Architectural Education and UK Universities
It will take place on 3rd of April in Anglia Ruskin University.
We would be really happy to have each school represented and take part in the discussion – what is the role of the architect today and in the ‘Future City’. The scheduled talks will address the criteria for architectural education that is needed to reflect on the challenges of the ‘Future Cities’ and faced by future practitioners.
Although it is the beginning of the Easter break we thoroughly recommend that people take this opportunity to make connections with students around the UK and see Chelmsford.
We are hoping for strong attendance.
Discussion Groups Notes
These are the small group discussions notes from the afternoon session. Special thanks go to the MSSA Volunteers who helped leading and transcribing the discussions : Stephen Lovejoy, Rebekah Parkinson, Samuel Hall, Daniel Kelso and Tiffany Wong!
The conference took place in Manchester School of Art in February. For more photos, visit our Facebook page – Architecture Sudent Netwok.
The next ASN conference will be on 18th of June hosted by the University of Brighton. The event will be a weekend long celebration of architectural education with symposiums, lectures and activities. More details coming soon!
While the #BDTwitter100 is good, and serves its purpose well, it is generally geared towards the wider industry, and pays only lip-service to students and our needs.
That is why we’ve opened nominations for the 2013 #TheASNTwitter50. Nominate those users you enjoy (dis)agreeing with, find useful during your professional experience or are talking about the issues that concern you the most. These could be architects, students, construction professionals or even your local community group who have supported you through your education.
Send your nominations to @the_ASN using #TheASNTwitter50 by midnight on Friday 29th March (Good Friday), with the aim to have results out by the end of the long weekend. We’ll also compile the top 50 into an easy to follow list.
We’ll try and be as un-subjective as possible, but we’ll try to group them into common themes as they emerge, for example: users talking about part 3 issues, offering technical tutorials or advice, architectural technicians, coders, educators, et cetera.
DE Magazine have kindly offered a year subscription to the users in the overall Top 10.
