The first Cass Research seminar of 2019/20 will explore the relationship between the architecture studio and the production of research.
Every year, studios and units at The Cass produce a wealth of research about the urban and rural environment, its social, spatial, economic and historic components.
Five architecture studios will present brief PechaKucha slideshows (20 slides, 5 seconds per slide) in which they show us what research they have produced and we will follow with a discussion. In this seminar we will explore how this research is captured; how it might usefully be disseminated to those for whom it is relevant; and how it can be most impactful to the wider world beyond the studio.

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.
