If you are a student enrolled in the second or third year of a RIBA-accredited Part-1 course, then the Student Charrette is designed for you! This one-day design competition brings together teams of Part-1 students from around the country to compete in an entirely analogue event.
Working without a computer, you will need to think fast and draw faster, developing and testing your representational skills without the aid of digital technologies. Teams will be mentored by practicing architects, and the event will conclude with a juried design review.
The charrette is run in London on a weekend, and funding is available to help cover travel costs. Prizes will be offered for the winning team and two runners-up, with the winning proposal published and promoted across the AIA UK's social media channels.
