The current average spend on 5 years of architecture school in the UK was £36,680, set to rise this year to £88,726 with the national increase in tuition fees.
The artistic partnership of ZaP Architecture invited architecture students to creatively VENT how they feel about this, given the current job prospects for architectural graduates.
ZAP Architecture secured the majestic Florence Hall at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London for a month long exhibition, 'Pavilion of Protest', beginning on the 25th of October 2011. ZAP want to use this as an opportunity to showcase the best of young architectural talent, the type of talent that doesn’t work for free and values it’s worth.
This collection of artwork will be judged by esteemed members of the creative industries. The judges have been named as Chris Lee, 2010 UK young architect of the year, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, internationally renowned architect, Peter Randall-Page - renowned British sculptor and new RIBA president Angela Brady.
