03 New Academic Year 18/19

WELCOME BACK!

We really hope you’ve had an amazing summer, with lots of adventures, sun, heat and rest. On our side, we’ve been working hard to prepare this new academic year, in tight collaboration with the BA’s staff and admin members, who have been of incredible help. The AS:CSM is now a full, coherent part of the Architecture department, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Here’s a peak of what’s coming this year:

OPEN STUDIOS LECTURE SERIES renewed

We’re so happy to say that the warmly welcomed Open Studios lectures have been renewed for another year. Just like in 17/18, we will be inviting guest architects and designers for cosy and intimate lectures at CSM. On the line so far: Assemble, Muf, Publica, and potentially Zaha Hadid…

Stay tuned on social media and our calendar for more info. Coming in November.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME new

A new mentorship programme including all Stages, introduced by the department and AS:CSM.

This is a big one. Click here for more info.

MUSEUM VISITS AND LONDON TOURS WITH SHUMI BOSE renewed

Another members favourite! Shumi will be back this year to show us around great exhibitions, city tours, and much more. A great opportunity for Stage 01s to meet their contextual studies tutor; and loads of fun and knowledge to grab for everyone else.

MOVIE NIGHTS new

We’re introducing movie nights this year. Our eyes are strained enough staring at lines and CAD drawings on tiny computer screens; how about we meet in the LVMH theatre with some popcorn and relax? And you can vote for the next films to be shown. Click here.

SOCIALS AND PUB CRAWLS improved

We always aim to bring all stages and peers together, and there’s nothing better than socials to do just that. Beyond the BA Launch, Christmas Parties etc, we will be organising bi weekly socials at the CSM Bar, hoping to crawl some other place later in the night.

SKILLS EXCHANGE WORKSHOPS new

For the first time, we have found a way to potentially tackle our need for more personalised, less ‘lecture formatted’ lessons on key skills that are required of us during the BA.

Stage 03s will be tutors in their chosen skills; Stage 01s and 02s are invited to join for a one afternoon session in their chosen field.

To be either a tutor or tutee, sign up here.
