Founded in 1826, UCL was the first English university to accept students regardless of religion, gender or social status, and was also the first to appoint a chair of architecture, in 1841.</p> Science Nonfiction: bringing emerging technologies into the UK's architecture education Robert Urquhart 2015-12-05T04:00:00-05:00 >2015-12-09T01:09:35-05:00 <img src="" width="650" height="429" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Taking stock of emergent technologies at The Bartlett and the Architectural Association in London &ndash; two of the most innovative and genre-pushing architectural education institutions worldwide &ndash; it&rsquo;s difficult to not be in awe of the possibilities. Michael Weinstock, Director of the Emergent Technologies and Design at the AA, describes the current state of just what &ldquo;emerging&rdquo; means: "I think we are at a kind of break point where we are just starting to get free of the imitation of previous ways of doing things. We've already got the efficiency, fewer people, fewer materials &ndash; that's the first goal, that's established. But let's remember that emerging technology is the outcome of an evolutionary process."</p> Screen/Print #25: The debut issue of The Bartlett's "LOBBY" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-09-25T19:21:00-04:00 >2014-09-29T22:57:38-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="721" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>With a name like <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>LOBBY</strong></a>, <a href="" target="_blank">The Bartlett&nbsp;School of Architecture</a>&rsquo;s new architecture magazine puts itself in two camps. Interpreted as an architectural metaphor, the magazine is a waiting area, a limbo-space between inside and outside. Alternatively, it&rsquo;s a political rallying group, pushing its agenda on the powers that be. From the looks of the first issue, <em>Un/Spectacle</em>, <strong>LOBBY</strong> is set on occupying both those territories.</p> Student Works: New Horizons Iceland Expedition Archinect 2013-02-04T14:01:00-05:00 >2013-03-10T13:40:33-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In late November 2012, London's <a href="" target="_blank">The Bartlett School of Architecture</a> Unit 3 embarked on an expedition to Iceland.</p> <p> Warmed by the Gulf Stream, endless geysers and caught between two major tectonic plates, this land of endless volcanic activity is also home to Europe's largest glacier.</p> <p> Twelve 2nd and 3rd year students designed, built and tested a series of shelter/surveying devices to research and charted varied aspects of Iceland.</p>
