Kent School of Architecture and Planning (KSAP) are excited to announce that we will be hosting our End of Year Show 2020 as an online exhibition this year.
Head of School, Professor Gerald Adler, writes, “What a year this has been, our fifteenth since the establishment of the School at the University! We began last September on an optimistic note: last summer we had gained continuing and unconditional validation from the RIBA for our Part One and Two programmes. This is no mean feat, and I thank all colleagues for the work involved in this, and all students whose work we used as evidence and who engaged in lively discussions with the Visiting Board.
We also launched two new postgraduate programmes: the PGDip Architectural Practice, our Part 3 course run by Peter Wislocki, and a new MSc in Bio Digital Architecture, directed by Tim Ireland. We are currently going through the process of seeking RIBA Validation and ARB Prescription for the Part 3, and hope to have our first graduates later this year.
We have welcomed new colleagues to the School, as well as putting some seasoned teachers onto a firmer footing with us. We have pioneered a new ‘Practitioner’ Contract, aimed specifically at design practitioners, and have engaged Felicity Atekpe, John Letherland, Fiona Raley and Alan Powers on fractional posts. While we were sad to say goodbye to Patrick Crouch last year, we have engaged Tim Meacham as our in-house artist, working mainly in Stage One.
Under Chloe Street Tarbatt’s direction, the BA (Hons) Architecture course has seen changes in the teaching pattern and use of space, where we now run design/technology studio in Stages Two and Three over two days. In the MArch, Michael Richards has built on the success of the programme by fostering the great diversity in approach afforded by the Unit system, which you will be able to explore in our online End of Year Show 2020, which I warmly invite you to join us in celebrating our students’ fantastic work.”
Welcome you to explore our End of Year Show 2020 which is now live.
