TAS Films 2016: Koolhaas Houselife

Koolhaas Houselife Poster

The Architecture Society is proud to present Ila Bêka and Louis Lemoine’s documentary Koolhaas Houselife.

The first project of the Living Architectures series, Koolhaas Houselife portrays one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture. The film lets the viewer enter into the house’s daily intimacy through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. Pungent, funny and touching.

NUS Architecture City Exhibition 2016

CITYEXPOSTER2-FINAL4

Writing near the end of the first century B.C.E, Roman architect Vitruvius Pollio identified three elements necessary for a well-designed building: firmitas (firmness), utilitas (utility), and venustas (delight). All architecture aspire towards delight- to bring delight to those who admire, utilise, or inhabit it. Architects, in turn, learn to take delight in the act of creation, solution, or intervention. With this exhibition, we hope to inspire architects, students, parents, and friends alike to delight in architecture and be delighted by it.

NUS City Exhibition is the annual showcase of engaging design schemes from NUS Architecture School.

Opening night: 8 July 2016, 7.00-9.30 PM

Exhibition duration: 8-29 July 2016
Venue: Urban Redevelopment Authority Centre Atrium
Hours: 8:30 AM-5.00 PM daily
Closed on Sundays.

Exhibition: IMPROMPTU

The Architecture Society presents

IMPROMPTU

Impromptu is a school-sanctioned informal exhibition, as part of a student initiative organized by TAS. It is a five-day-long exhibition that ends on 21st Nov (Wednesday). All students are invited to exhibit their works, as we feel that everyone’s efforts for one entire semester ought to be recognised better through public display.

We invite anyone and everyone to the exhibition. General public and people interested in NUS Architecture (or Architecture for that matter) are welcome to walk in to the SDE studios to observe the works on display. We further encourage NUS Architecture students to take the opportunity to discover what your juniors, peers and seniors have been working on, and learn from one another. We urge you to also invite your friends and family to the exhibition.
