Schools of architecture still support ARCHAOS

  • Comment

The Standing Conference of Heads of Schools of Architecture (SCHOSA) was disappointed to see Beth Kay's letter on behalf of ARCHAOS, accusing schools of being indifferent, unhelpful and disorganised (AJ 19.6.03).

It is a strange type of indifference and unhelp - fulness that led SCHOSA to be the main funder of ARCHAOS for three years running, providing support that the profession initially seemed unwilling to give.

We supported ARCHAOS in the hope that it would continue the vital work of its early days in raising the profile of stu - dent issues, notably student debt and low wages. Last year SCHOSA became concerned that the agenda of ARCHAOS had lost focus and that its leadership appeared less well organised; we therefore reduced our support.

However, we did leave the door open for ARCHAOS to come back to us with specific issue-led projects that needed funding.
