This show places high emphasis on socially engaged architecture with London and Global contexts

This year’s exhibition features work from Foundation year, Undergraduate studios, Postgraduate diploma units, Masters programmes and PhD students at the School. 

There is an emphasis on socially engaged architecture with London and Global contexts. Care, intellectual rigour and attention to detail are consistently demonstrated through investigation, process, drawings, and models including projects responding to aspects of Mani, Greece; Berlin ; Havana; Marfa, Texas: Agra, India and the US/ Mexican Border. Samples and a film from HelioMet, the only UK entry into the Solar Decathlon Europe 2012, offer a tantalising glimpse of the emerging project.

London acts as case study and resource through explorations of and responses to its high streets, rooftops, forgotten shopping centres and railway arches. The show  includes outcomes realised as part of The Aldgate Project, an inter-disciplinary project which saw 450 students work on projects engaging with community groups, businesses,charities and stakeholders in the Aldgate area.

Plans for The School of Architecture’s forthcoming merger with the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Media and Design are presented including concepts for the new Faculty’s building at Central House by the School’s Architecture Research Unit (ARU). From the 1st August 2012 the new Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design will enrich and extend our offer to our students including access to specialist workshops, laboratories and digital manufacturing technologies.

    Deathly dull and worthy. A straight-jacket of a school for non-thinkers.
