I am one of the eleven participants from MA Architectural History course to be in this year’s MArch + MA Exhibition 2011 at the UCL Bartlett. We have made a cool pamphlet that you can take home and read the bits from our essays and reports. Here is a little taster for you. Lots of great stuff to titillate your neurons, perfect for bed-time reading!

I am uploading here a section of what Professor Iain Borden had to say about our texts in the afterword of our pamphlet:

These texts by the graduates of the MA Architectural History programme cover an extraordinary range of subjects, ranging from buildings, construction elements and materials to discourses, representations and ideas. […] And while focusing their historical lens primarily on the last two centuries, they go back much further whenever necessary […] What we end up with, therefore, is not so much a set of answers – although there is of course much of value to be learned here – but a set of interpretations, speculations and challenges as to the way we understand architecture, produce architecture and experience architecture today. These graduates ask not only “how was it in the past?” but also “how might it be in the present (and future)?”

If any of you are coming to the opening party on 27th September (starting at 6PM), be sure to tap me on the shoulder and say hello!
