Event Details

The Anthropocene Architecture School's Crisis Studio returns to Glasgow to practically address knowledge gaps in architectural education. After kicking off positively and proactively in November, the Crisis Studio returns to Glasgow once more to create a momentary studio space to support architecture students in refining their sustainable design skills during the ongoing Climate Emergency . This is a space for students to bring ongoing design studio projects and be supported in embedding sustainability into them by our multidisciplinary tutor team, and to learn from one another's approaches whilst seeing work from outwith their own school and year group. Format The evening shall be separated into 3 clusters of three 15-minute one-to-one tutorials or the possibility of one 45-minute one-to-three seminar, followed by a 10-minute break for the tutor team: at the beginning of each cluster, the tutors shall introduce themselves and what they do; students with a continuing project from the previous semester or solid idea of what they would like to learn can then pick a befitting tutor; and from there we shall let things progress organically and move thing along in 15-minute slots . Introductions for the first cluster shall begin at 6.10 , so work should be on the walls for 6.00 , and so on. As this is the start of a new semester for students it is not expected for you to bring a fully-worked out project: there is no better place to embed sustainability than at the very beginning of a design so students at all stages of a project are encouraged to attend. Please fix work to the walls as quickly as possible at the start of each break to optimise the time for tutorials, and take your work down at the end of your cluster to allow the next students to use the space as you did. Please also read the short bio of each tutor beforehand to help you decide what you intend to learn and remain flexible and open on the evening. We would kindly ask that attendees only book a single slow to allow as many students as possible to be supported - remaining to see other students work and observe tutorials can continue as long as numbers do not get in the way of things running. Afterwards Every Crisis Studio is a learning resource and tool, so there shall be a follow up survey to gather feedback from both attendees and tutors to feed into ongoing research to be passed onto the RIAS and to support developments in traditional schools of architecture in the face of the Climate Crisis .
