NUS Architecture OpenStudio 2011 Signup

Behind every successful architect is a MONSTER… pile of work.

The Architecture Society presents NUS ARCHITECTURE OPEN STUDIO 2011…

21 & 28 October 2011 | 2 – 4 pm | SDE Foyer

Experience the life of an architect through the students as we bring you on a tour of their everyday life. On a common studio day, we invite you to enquire, wonder through the spaces and tempt your creative juices. The work never ends, but we’ll never be too busy to share our ideas with you!

So whether you’re a student, reminiscing about being a student, or are just plain interested, pick a day and come on down. We’ll always be there.

Constitutional Amendments

Dear Architecture Students,

This year, the 31st Executive Committee of The Architecture Society set out to raise awareness of our unique and intrinsic relationships with the profession and academia.

Moreover, as representatives of the student body, we aimed to create a substantial presence in our faculty.

In 2011, we initiated the inaugural TAS Debates which brought together members of the fraternity and faculty to discuss topics pertinent to our profession. We also chose to present undergraduate and post-graduate works under one exhibition at MICA this year, so as to reinforce the holistic nature of our education.

Apart from these landmark events, we organized Open Office and Open Studio tours to give current and prospective students the opportunity to understand the inner workings of practice and school. Also, great effort has gone into crafting Paper Space and Post – Script, publications which capture student life.

In keeping with our efforts to rejuvenate our established society, we have sought to revise our constitution to accommodate student representatives from every year within the new executive committee. This is your chance to nominate  your peers to represent you within the society.

At our Extraordinary General Meeting on Thursday, 08 September, we seek to validate and vote in the changes which will allow our society to stay relevant and endure. You will also have the opportunity to directly vote for the new president of the society.

Please join us and be a part of the change.

Sincerely,

TAS 31st Executive Committee 2010/2011

The Architecture Society Elections Proceedings

This year, the 31st Executive Committee of The Architecture Society set out to

raise awareness of our unique and intrinsic relationships with the profession

and academia.

Moreover, as representatives of the student body, we aimed to create a

substantial presence in our faculty.

In 2011, we initiated the inaugural TAS Debates which brought

together members of the fraternity and faculty to discuss topics pertinent

to our profession. We also chose to present undergraduate and post-graduate

works under one exhibition at MICA this year, so as to reinforce the holistic

nature of our education.

Apart from these landmark events, we organized Open Office and Open Studio

tours to give current and prospective students the opportunity to understand the

inner workings of practice and school. Also, great effort has gone into crafting

Paper Space and Post – Script, publications which capture student life.

In keeping with our efforts to rejuvenate our established society, we have sought

to revise our constitution to accommodate student representatives from every

year within the new executive committee. This is your chance to nominate

your peers to represent you within the society.
