2016 Architecture Thesis Symposium

The 5th Annual Architecture Thesis Symposium in Cork on Monday 1 February from 10:30am-5.00pm. The event will profile emerging new architectural talent and will involve a showcase of design thesis projects completed in 2015. Hosted by CCAE- Cork Centre for Architectural Education, the event is open to all students of Architecture, professionals, academics, and related arts disciplines. It will be of interest to anyone involved in the development of emerging design practices and in the wider cultural development of new spatial and theoretical investigations.

Each of the seven Schools of Architecture throughout Ireland have nominated two outstanding student projects, which will be presented and discussed within the Symposium setting. It is intended that the presentations will take place in small seminar groups, with an ancillary gallery exhibition of the projects.

Professor Marcos Cruz, former Director of the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture and Unit 20 Leader- will deliver a keynote Lecture on the design thesis and its future direction and possibilities. A planned evening event will take place where students from each School can interact informally, and there is a hope of offering some accommodation for those students travelling longer distances. Further details will be announced on a Facebook page which has been set up to distribute all further information with regard to the event- which can be found HERE.

1 February from 10:30am-5.00pm

Aula Maxima, UCC, Cork.
