EUSAS Discuss | School's Out


As part of the Edges of Architecture Lecture series, EUSAS Discuss 001: SCHOOL’S OUT

Provocation: Architectural education isn’t worth it.

It’s been called stagnant, irrelevant and 'flabby’ (AJ, 2013). At £9,000+ a year, flabby isn’t fair. So what’s the point? Is it time to rethink the system?

Speakers: 
Abi Patel (RIBA student council member) 
Theo Shack (Editor-in-Chief of Crumble and ESALA 4th year)
Cat Lygate (ESALA 6th Year)
+ 1 open space

Each speaker has 5 minutes to make their case.

Friday 24th November, Adam House Lecture Theatre, 6.30pm


Do you have an opinion? We're looking for speakers*! 

*All disciplines and ages are encouraged to take part. There will be GRAND PRIZES for all speakers (including highly desirable limited edition badges).


Free to all EUSAS members
£5 For non-members, £6 For non-students
Membership available at the door (cash only)

Lecture Series | CJ Lim


This week EUSAS welcomes CJ Lim

‘Inhabitable Infrastructures: Science fiction or urban future?’ the follow up to ‘Food City’ and ‘Smartcities and Eco-Warriors’, explores the potential of climate change-related multi-use infrastructures that address the fundamental human requirements to protect, to provide and to participate. The stimulus for the infrastructures of resilience derives from postulated scenarios and processes gleaned from science fiction and futurology as well as current body of scientific knowledge regarding changing impacts on cities. JG Ballard has written that the psychological realm of science fiction is most valuable in its predictive function, and in projecting emotions into the future.

CJ Lim is the Professor of Architecture and Urbanism at The Bartlett, UCL and the founder of Studio 8 Architects. His teaching and designs focus on multi-disciplinary innovative interpretations of social, political, and environmental sustainability programs. He is the recipient of the Royal Academy of Arts London ‘Grand Architecture Prize’. He has authored 12 books including ‘Virtually Venice’ (2006), ‘Smartcities + Eco-warriors’ (2010), ‘Short Stories: London in two-and-a-half dimensions’ (2011) and ‘Food City’ (2014).

Copies of the book will be sold for the discounted price of £20 (normal retail price £29.99), cash sale only.

Instahunt 2017


 Acquaint yourself with the City of Edinburgh with a scavenger hunt using Instagram! Not only is it a fun way to get to know your way around, but you'll also get to know your fellow architects (who you will be spending a lot of time with in the coming months) and also be in with a chance of winning some prizes!

Players will be split into teams of roughly 5 freshers accompanied by 1-2 senior students who will help you make your way around the city, and capture the best images. Post your photos with a eusas hashtag to be confirmed on the day, and all the images will be judged in categories, with prizes given out later in the day.

Good luck! (And remember to bring a fully charged phone!)
