In Spring 2019 The Cass hosted an Architecture Foundation Megacrit.
The Cass Megacrit was organised by the newly founded student society MASS and incorporated a half day series of crits, an exhibition and evening lecture with Levitt Bernstein. Organised and led by students, the day incorporated 26 students from four different schools of Architecture all looking at the topic of Housing by proposing new models for living, such as mixed-use, co-housing, high density urban blocks and visionary proposals for future rural settlements.
In this special Cass Research Seminar guest critics and students who participated in the Megacrit come together to discuss the work, the format, and the topic of housing.
Cass Research Seminars are a series of public conversations which enable
researchers to test and present their ideas in conversation with peers
and a broader audience. The sessions seek cross-fertilisation of ideas and provoke discussion. Typically, they consist of two to three presentations of 15 minutes each followed by chaired discussion.
We had a productive year in 2017/18. Presenters found that the session deepened their work and added unexpected avenues to their thinking. All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass. For more information email email@example.com and follow us on Twitter for the latest information @CassResearch
