Zonal NASA Convention, Acharya’s NRV College of Architecture, India
8-11 Oct 2016
What is NASA, India?
The National Association of Students of Architecture divides all architecture colleges across India into six zones. To bring together colleges from each zone, NASA, India holds an exclusive convention for students of architecture.
This year, NASA, India has chosen Acharya’s NRV College of Architecture to host the Zonal NASA Convention for Zone 5. Zone 5 includes more than forty colleges from across Goa, Telengana, Seemandhra and Karnataka.
Over the course of 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th October 2016, the college will become a concentrate of 1500 innovative minds from across the south.
The students will be pushed to their limits by being put into frames of minds that solve paradoxes: real time problem solving, timed unconventional design prompts etc.; there will be basketball and football tournament, fashion show, dance competitions, battle of the bands and the entire event will be topped off by an exhilarating DJ Night.
Distinguished architects and educators such as Christopher Benninger, Anup Naik, Leena Kumar, Sumit Ghosh, Apurva Bose & Eugene Pandala will conduct talks on an eclectic spectrum of design and innovation.
While it is a closed convention, the scale of it is momentous. It is seldom that this many design minds, all focused on architecture and construction congregate in one place.
Pedagogy at Acharya’s NRV School of Architecture is holistic beyond the prescription and boasts of an extravagant 120-acre contemporary campus that buzzes with over 12,000 students from 65 different countries every day. The blue, white and orange vernacular compound has also famously been the backdrop of many famous Kannada and Tamil movies.

St Mary Redcliffe Symposium, UK
St Mary Redcliffe Church in Bristol : Architecture Competition
23 Feb 2016
A series of talks and discussions in one of England’s finest churches.
Hear new thinking on issues surrounding the design and construction of new buildings on historically important sites. This symposium is recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) for CPD.
St Mary Redcliffe Church in Bristol – once described by Queen Elizabeth I as ‘the fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England’ – has recently launched an international architecture competition, run by Malcolm Reading Consultants, to inform a large scale redevelopment of its facilities. The project will result in the appointment of a team of architects with whom the church will work to develop a proposal for new built infrastructure in the environs of the current church building.
In recognition of the status of St Mary Redcliffe as one of Bristol’s most important landmarks and one of the country’s most important parish churches the church has decided to hold a Symposium on church architecture entitled Architecture and the contemporary church: imagining the new in the context of the old.
Featuring a filmed introduction from Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson
Lecture by the architect, lecturer and theorist Luis Martínez Santa-María, School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
Date: Monday, 15 February 2016 – 7 p.m.
Lecture: “Peso y Materia”. Weight and Matter
Place: School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
Aula Magna (Main Hall) – C/ Immaculada, 22, Barcelona
Public lecture. Free admission
Next Monday, 15 February, the School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona hosts the second lecture of Foros 2016, “Origin”. The lecture, which is open to the public and will take place at 19:00 in the Main Hall of the UIC Barcelona Campus, is given by Luis Martínez Santa-María, Doctor of Architecture from the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM). Martínez Santa-María is renowned both for his design work, and as a teacher and the author of various publications reflecting on architecture.
With the title “Weight and Matter”, the guest speaker will be examining how some architecture works and projects combine these two concepts in a way that constantly escapes reality. According to Martínez Santa-María “architecture belongs to the physical world, in which bodies and objects have a weight, and move towards and away from each other and us, by virtue of their material condition”.
Luis Martínez Santa-María combines teaching and editorial work with his ongoing activity in the studio as integral parts of his commitment to architecture. He has lectured in Projects at the ETSAM since 1990, and his doctoral thesis “Tierra espaciada: el árbol, el camino, el estanque ante la casa” was awarded the UPM’s Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award in 2000. Since 2005 he has been director of La Cimbra, the book collection of Fundación Caja de Arquitectos. His body of architecture work reflects his interest in the floor plan, which, according to Martínez Santa-María, generates architecture and concentrates the intellectual capacity of the architect.
Foros is an annual lecture series organized by the UIC Barcelona School of Architecture in which renowned national and international architects share their vision of architecture and the profession through their work. In this eighteenth edition, Jorge Vidal, lecturer and director of Foros, under the title “Origin”, invites the speakers at this edition to get to the origin of things, of thinking, of projects and works, with the aim of drawing a map to help us understand things that can be invisible and hard to explain.
Sobre la School of Architecture de UIC Barcelona
The School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona is committed to the intellectual, professional and personal growth of all those who form part of it. The School of Architecture has strongly invested in a teaching model based on individual attention, practical learning based on bringing in all areas of knowledge, cutting-edge technology and teaching staff with international experience in order to train architects to be able to tackle the challenges posed by society.
Baltic Pavilion: The Phosphorite Debate, Estonian Centre of Architecture
15 February at 18:00 to 21 February at 15:00 in UTC+02
Next week, this public discussion series will seek to present an understanding of architecture as an agent at the heart of civic debate establishing a sphere of visibility and publicity – explaining contemporary challenges of built environment and role of the architect in making structures public. The talks will be public and open to everybody; the event series will be in English.
In 1980s, the environmental protests both rejected the mass-industrialization of our local resources and galvanized the Estonian independence movement. Analyzing that historical precedent as a starting point, the focus of the discussion will shift to contemporary developments. The talks will inquire into range of issues enabling connections between politics, civic processes, technological developments and built infrastructures in order to establish an understanding of the complex phenomena as space for architectural interventions to deal with its consequences.
The focus on the Phosphorite Debate
With invited designers, planners, paleo-ecologist, environmental activists, geologists and representatives of the mining industry, the panel discussions will focus on society’s relationship with mining – how Estonia and the Baltic Region relate to its mineral resources and the industries involved. Our round table discussions will trace the ideas relating society to its material space and resources. Both extremes of this debate – the condition of mining and not-mining – consist of their inherent material and immaterial infrastructures, technologies and strategic argumentation where visionary thinking meets provisionary control of the environment, while creating complex material, bureaucratic, political, civic conditions to enable or disable the process.
As a result, we seek to render out an operative image or a diagram charting those two opposites, the conditions of mining and not mining with the aim to understand their interrelations as specific parameters for possible further formulations of architectural agendas and ideas on modes of intervention possible in the region.
The Phosphorite Debate is a part of the Baltic Pavilion conceptual framework – the project representing the Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania at the 2016 La Biennale di Venezia International Architecture Exhibition, and the talks programme is led by Johan Tali (Estonia), Jonas Žukauskas (Lithuania), Jurga Daubaraite (Lithuania), Petras Isora (Lithuania), Niklāvs Paegle (Latvia) and Dagnija Smilga (Latvia) from the Baltic Pavilion curatorial team.
The week-long series of talks is organized with support from The Estonian Academy of Arts Department of Architecture and Estonian Center of Architecture, funded by the Cultural Endowment Fund of Estonia.
The events are all in English and take place in the venue rooms of Estonian Centre of Architecture (Põhja pst 27a, Tallinn).

Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture, RIBA HQ, 66 Portland Place, London, UK
9 Feb 2016
Image by Peter Cook, ‘Veg House, Stage 4’:
On 9 February at 18:00-20:30, RIBA HQ 66 Portland Place will be hosting a CPD seminar:
‘Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture: Professor Sir Peter Cook in Conversation with Professor Marcos Cruz’
For architects, drawing is a thinking process. Sketching by hand onto paper without having any predetermined built form in mind is often the springboard for new hypotheses. With the rise of digital representation in architecture, has the computer superseded the hand in the exploration of ideas?
