10th – 16th July 2014 Testbed1, Battersea
Arcsoc is proud to present the annual Architecture Summer Show, the culmination of a year’s design work in the Cambridge studios. For one week, we are bringing our show to London to offer an insight into our department and our work.
The Summer Show is a presentation of our work, from the initial explorations of first year to the final schemes of third and fifth years. The students at Cambridge form a close-knit yet diverse community within a relatively small department. Cambridge encourages an approach to design that is both academic and creative. As a result, our work is strongly grounded in context, drawing on a rigorous background of history and theory teaching and responding to the real-life demands and constraints of a site. Our work maintains a social focus and demonstrates the diversity that can arise from the particularities of an area.
Arcsoc is a wholly student-run and not-for-profit initiative. The exhibition is entirely planned, built and curated by the students and is financed by our fundraising work throughout the year.
The show opens with a private view on the evening of Thursday 10th July and is open to the public until Wednesday 16th July. During the week we will host an afternoon of free public lectures from contemporary practitioners and university academics, life drawing sessions and a day for prospective students. For more information please contact Max at email@example.com.

Thank you to all who attended the Summer Show 2013!
Every year, all our models, drawings and design projects are transported to London for our annual exhibition, presented to family, friends, professional architects and the design press. From day one the exhibition is entirely student run, completely funded by money that Arcsoc raises through sponsorship and events, and is a brilliant exercise in curation and design for all those involved. Not only do we showcase the best student work but are also given the opportunity to explore ideas at a full scale, moving from the studio to the real world.

As an entirely student run and funded organisation we rely completely on the money we are able to raise throughout the year, through events and sponsorship. Our goal is to put on an excellent exhibition, and without the generosity of sponsors we would be unable to do so.
The combined costs of venue hire, materials, tools, printing, and transport involved in the exhibition can be challenging to raise solely through our events. Throughout the year our sponsorship team is responsible for seeking out sympathetic sponsors whose contributions can make a world of difference.
If you would like to contribute to our exhibition fund for 2015, please contact Hannah Benton
for any enquiries regarding sponsorship.
