Akua Danso Architects love to discuss how much sleep they’ve gotten. One will say how he was at the studio until five in the morning, only to have returned two hours later. Then another will say, oh that’s nothing. I haven’t slept in a week! And then another will say, guess what? I’ve NEVER slept! Dear architects, the measure of how hard you have worked and how much you’ve accomplished is not related to the number of hours you’ve slept. Rem Koolhaas is always sleeping, and I hear that he gets stuff done! 42

Jennifer Edwards Having turned up in the first year with a scale ruler and pencil in hand, it’s hard to believe how far and how much we have learnt over the past three years. This course has definitely been the most challenging thing I’ve done so far, but the stress, all nighters and deadlines have all been worth it and everyone should be proud of what they have achieved. “I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen”

Camille Frichot I have been passionate about art and architecture from a young age. I have developed a keen eye for the sculptural aesthetic. I enjoy a challenge and like to test myself. KSA has allowed me the room to grow and develop my initial ideas to bring them to fruition. Studying architecture has allowed me to explore my creative side, using and developing a vast range of media, from free hand charcoal drawings to computer visualisations of my concepts and designs.

Anna Koumi For those who underestimate architecture, try living in the studio in front of a computer screen and forgetting what the word ‘sleep’ means. It requires courage, confidence and a dream to make an architect so if you are not ready to fly, do not jump. It has been 3 years of hard work and a lot of criticisms. And yet, I would do it again! 70

Charlotte Mace My Urban museum was designed to highlight and therefore promote Ramsgate’s architecturally significant buildings and developments. This was done by creating opportunities for views of the three grade I listed buildings and Ramsgate’s harbour from within the building. The walkway around the building was also designed to enable visitors to view Ramsgate when circulating through the building as though the town itself were an exhibit.

Leo Mulkerns Well what a great but quick three years, we struck a balance between culture and fun and for me architecture and football. There are so many good memories it’s hard to write them all down from the trips to Barcelona and Berlin to being part of the football team. It’s a shame to leave but bring on the next chapter! Good luck to everyone, whatever you do!

Natasha Neera Nathan Richard Meier once said that architecture ‘is not about making a building or monument, it is about creating a place and making a statement’. I was always inspired by this way thinking. As architects we have the ability to shape an exciting living experience for the users by creating an interactive space within any given setting.

I’ve had a great experience at Kent and will

continue to strive in pursuing my passion of Architecture.

Oliver Treves The last three years at Kent School of Architecture have undoubtedly been the best of my academic life. It has been a privilege to work alongside such creative individuals and be taught by a group of fantastic tutors. A special thank you to Dr Timothy Brittain�Catlin for your thoroughly inspiring lectures, (the most memorable being those held in the middle of main roads in Barcelona), and for your seemingly boundless knowledge on all matters of architecture. Thanks KSA for having me, it’s been a blast.

After three years of study at KSA, I have graduated the first part of my professional development, together with an exceptional team, whose members are tutors, course mates and friends. I am now taking a bow, being grateful for their efforts. I am proud to be part of this community and my heart sings along ‘Gaudeamus igitur’. 127

prizes

Each year Kent School of Architecture students excel themselves, producing work of the highest quality. However, there are those students that stand out amongst their peers. This year, the Kent School of Architecture will be awarding prizes to graduatiing students at the Endof-Year Show, EXIT:12 PEEP SHOW. The following prizes are awarded within the School of Architecture.

Hays Prize for written work on Architecture M.Arch: Head of School Prize (BA): Head of School Prize (M.Arch): Portfolio Prize M.Arch: RIBA Kent Branches Student Prize Pt. 1 (BA Hons): RIBA Kent Branches Student Prize Pt. 2 (M.Arch): Stage 3 Arch Portfolio prize: Stage 3 Interiors Portfolio Prize: Undergraduate Most Innovative Written Work:

142


This is the third year that the End-of-Year Show has been designed by committee; the EXIT Committee. Each year, students are invited to register their interest in joining the committee tasked with designing, organising and building the show and this associated catalogue.

EXIT:12 PEEP SHOW is the culmination of a year of planning and hard work, but which inevitably goes right up to the wire. This year, the committee have faced additional obstacles along the way, but they have remained resolute and determined to see the job done.

The theme of the show stems from the students’ desire to tease the audience with intriguing glimpses and curious snapshots of work. Once again, the styling of the show permeates into this catalogue and the EXIT committee has been heavily involved with the layout and paste up of pages and content. Without their continued and often selfdisadvantageous efforts, neither the show nor the catalogue would have been possible.

believe design is a very interesting thing; life is filled with different designs, if you put your heart into it, and everything is “distinction�.

Mark Eszlari In my experience, architecture has taken a new turn: Stupid designs presented amazingly are more likely to get a first than the opposite…

As this course is an MA, it is self-directed and you’ll

have to teach yourself. It will be hard…But truly rewarding! Your life is not about humiliation, stress and surviving from crit to crit anymore. the MAAV room.

The 2011/2012 KASA term saw the first joint leadership by Laura Noble & Nicholas Sexton who presided over a Stella lecture series from Stephen Quinlan of Denton Corker Marshall, Director Ho-Yin NG of Amanda Levete Architects and rounded up by Peter Clegg of Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios. KASA continued its commitment to encouraging collaboration within the school and the creation of a strong school identity through the hosting of socials and design charettes throughout the year. Next year we aim to expand what we do. We are in the process of organising our next lectures series, improving our careers advise and plan to enter a team into the AIA design charette.

The 2012 Design Competition, the 4th brief issued by KASA, asked for students to tackle the problem of the unsightly exterior of the annex used for the exhibition through an architectural intervention of their design. The competition was the most popular ever run by KASA bringing in 9 separate entries from across all years of the school exhibiting some of the best talent the KSA has to offer. Judging was tough given the calibre of the entries but Peter Clegg finally announced a decision as being first year student Robert Joyce. Exhibited here is a selection of the competition entries. The work and initiative shown by these students we’re sure will prove a valuable addition to their portfolios and we wish them all the best in the future.

KASA is an organisation that can not exist without the help of its volunteer team made from the most passionate and hardworking students in the school. We extend our thanks and best wishes for the future to the KASA team. We are also supported greatly by the school and we would also like to thank Don Gray, Manolo Guerci, Howard Griffin, Brian Wood, Dele Ojo, Kevin Smith and Enzo Labrosciano, Victoria Friedman and Ben Martin for their help.

Finally we would like to thank Lee Evans Partnership for their

sponsorship, Elizabeth Turner of TRADA and all of our guest speakers. Good Luck to all KSA Graduates! Laura Noble & Nicholas Sexton, KASA Co-Presidents 169
