DISCUSS + REFLECT + INSPIRE
Our talks have no set format, usually 40 – 60 minutes in length which normally generates a good spectrum of projects and work to discuss. Most visiting practitioners talk about their projects; unbuilt, built, competitions, nightmares, their inspirations, experiences and then tackle questions from the inquisitive audience at the end of the talk. Due to Covid19, live lectures will now be streamed every Thursday via our Youtube channel. There will still be an opportunity for questions and a discussion with the guest, but for now, the post-lecture cheese and wine will be consumed from the comfort of your own home!
The 57°10 Architecture Society attracts mainly students and educators and it is the highest subscribed society at Robert Gordon University. The society is also an informal social outlet for people with similar interests in the built environment. We welcome other associated disciplines such as art, product design, graphic design, architectural technology and surveying; feeling that we can learn from the many and different disciplines beyond the world of purely architecture.
The society believes in a legitimate connectivity between students, tutors, members of the public and visiting professionals. We promote a relaxed and informal setting, whilst discussing shared interests and we do this in many ways!
