10th – 16th July 2014 Testbed1, Battersea

Arcsoc is proud to present the annual Architecture Summer Show, the culmination of a year’s design work in the Cambridge studios. For one week, we are bringing our show to London to offer an insight into our department and our work.

The Summer Show is a presentation of our work, from the initial explorations of first year to the final schemes of third and fifth years. The students at Cambridge form a close-knit yet diverse community within a relatively small department. Cambridge encourages an approach to design that is both academic and creative. As a result, our work is strongly grounded in context, drawing on a rigorous background of history and theory teaching and responding to the real-life demands and constraints of a site. Our work maintains a social focus and demonstrates the diversity that can arise from the particularities of an area.

Arcsoc is a wholly student-run and not-for-profit initiative. The exhibition is entirely planned, built and curated by the students and is financed by our fundraising work throughout the year.

The show opens with a private view on the evening of Thursday 10th July and is open to the public until Wednesday 16th July. During the week we will host an afternoon of free public lectures from contemporary practitioners and university academics, life drawing sessions and a day for prospective students.
