It's time for a new wave of students to take on the role of representing students, the new organisation is ASN, the Architecture Student Network. It can be found at theasn.org
As of today theASN is taking on all of the roles previously carried out by archaos, representing students to the RIBA, the ARB, schools of Architecture and Government.
The archaos website will continue to be available for reference only.
Here is a copy of theASN press release....
As of Monday 13th February The Architecture Students Network (the ASN) will publicly launch and assumes the responsibilities which were previously carried out by Archaos.
WHO: The ASN will be an independent network of student representatives from schools of architecture within the United Kingdom. The aims of the network will be to work to support and promote architecture student events, harness student opinion, and engage with other established, relevant educational organisations both nationally and internationally.
Building upon the positive work that Archaos has been doing over the last decade, the ASN would like to thank all of the students from Archaos, for their efforts in instigating fairer student working conditions and making a perceivable impact in clarifying information regarding the architectural education system in the UK.
The ASN will host a series of events this summer in partnership with various schools, and will be running the Architecture Students Assembly, an opportunity for students of architecture to meet on an annual basis.
The next meeting of the ASN will be held at the University of Greenwich School of Architecture, Design and Construction on Friday 9th March 2012. We would like to encourage students to represent the opinion of their respective schools at this meeting to contribute in the formation of an exciting new organisation.
