Architecture Students Network Architecture Students Network (ASN) ASN Futures Conference, February 2015 SSoA represented by Adam Turnell and Mohammed Khizr The Architecture Students Network is an independent network of student representatives from schools of architecture within the United Kingdom. The Network has existed for over 15 years, with the aim to support and promote architecture student events, harness student opinion, and engage with educational & professional organisations, both nationally and internationally. The annual conference held at the Manchester School of Art in February discussed a range of current issues which affect students at all stages of their study as well and the future of the profession as a whole. 40 students from over 20 schools of architecture from England, Scotland,Wales and Northern Island considered the value of the title of architect; the changing role of the profession; the effect of increased tuition fees; unpaid internships and the RIBA’s education reform. The outcomes of the conference fed into the ASN representation at the RIBA special Education Forum meeting on 24 March 2015 and gave architecture students a voice at this pivotal forum. The ASN’s Radical Pedagogies Symposium: Architectural education & the British Tradition on 4th June 2015 will generate a students’ manifesto for architectural education and be used to inform the debate on future models. This is part of the ASN continuing commitment to ensure that students are given a voice in the RIBA education reforms. 01 A Celebration of Architectural Education ASN conference on the 17th-18th June 2015 at the Brighton School of Architecture will provide the opportunity to show the unique and specialist skills which are developed by all architecture students. The ASN aims to promote all schools of architecture across the UK and as part of this provides a comprehensive list of dates and location of end of year degree shows to encourage greater cross communication between schools of architecture and to help the ASN to grow.
