SITE SETS SIGHTS ON STUDENTS

  • Comment
WEBWATCH

You may remember I recently signed up, a tad cynically given its slickness and my patent non-studenthood, with the Belgium-based ArchiStudent site at www.archi-student. org.

Why, I wondered, would any sane person want to spend lots of dosh on students?

The first issue turned up in my email box a couple of days ago and, eating a crust of humble pie, I have to say that at first sight it seems almost alright, even if it does take a while to change languages and sections.

The monthly newsletter is a reworked version of the site and includes a portrait, a project (the refurbished Atomium - that giant atomic structure thing in Brussels), products, an extensive programme of current European architecturerelated events, competitions, and book reviews. And all this in six languages.

Happily, the site now recognises the Bartlett's existence, though it hasn't yet got to grips with who its staff might be. There is a quiz, a job section and you can change the background colour (so far only from red to blue). The newsletter has details of a new ArchiStudent-sponsored competition and a small but potentially nice collection of others. Exemplary.

But that still doesn't answer my money question.
