The Critical Subjects Architecture and Design Summer School runs from 13th-19th July 2014. It will be held in five leading architectural offices in London: Arup’s, Zaha Hadid’s, AHMM’s, Amin Taha’s and ORMS’… as well as a day at The Architectural Review and the Building Centre/China Design Centre.
Critical Subjects is a unique opportunity for 30+ of the keenest students of architecture to engage in a series of intellectual architectural challenges facilitated by leading names in the field, to network with key architects, to engage in meaningful debate and maybe to challenge some of their preconceptions.
Over the course of a week, we will explore topics such visionary architecture, social criticism, historical-thinking and the nature of good design. Workshops will provide an open dialogue on classic texts and film, as well as sessions on ethics, the politics of design, human creativity, culture, global development, artificial intelligence, internships, the role of expertise and many, many more.
The Summer School is a residential, one week course costing just 250UKP (all inclusive with some meals and materials also provided).
