Charrette to put tall buildings on the agenda

  • Comment

The theme of this year's American Institute of Architects Annual Design Charrette is 'Vertically Inclined'. The brief asks for the reinvention of the use of an existing building and is intended to provoke discussion about tall buildings and their impact on the city.

The event, now in its seventh year, was established primarily to promote working relationships between students and practising architects. The design problem is issued at the start of the day, and the teams of five to eight students and practitioners present their work at a jury review in the late afternoon.

Participants bring their own drawing equipment, but a printing service is provided by Call Print, which sponsors the event each year. This year's jury will be Paul Finch, David Marks and Julia Barfield, Mark Brearley, John McAslan and Chris McArthy. The charrette will be held on Saturday 10 November.

Please contact Yasin Visram at myvisram@hotmail. com. This year the event will be held at Call Print's warehouses in Olympia.

The charrette is open to students and professionals from all design related disciplines and, as ever, promises to be intense, heated and inspiring. I encourage all of you to participate.

Yasin Visram, Nightingale Associates
