Announcing the 2019 Megacrits

Three schools of architecture around London will be hosting day-long events to encourage cross-school collaboration and discussion

The Architecture Foundation has been working with a number of London schools of architecture to organise the 2019 Megacrit programme. Each university has selected a theme and invited students and studios from other schools to share and present related work. This year's themes are Housing, Architecture and the City, and Rights in the City.

What is a Megacrit?

A Megacrit is a day-long inter-school event designed to expose students and tutors to a broad spectrum of work being produced beyond their own university. Students from different schools are brought together according to their particular research topics to engage in dialogues that transcend institutional boundaries.
