Let the society know you're interested but not yet ready for a membership.
PARCS is the student society for the School of Architecture. Our aim is to run events to widen our students knowledge, and bring energy and a sense of community especially to the studio! Throughout the year we host an incredible guest lecture series, a great variety of socials, excursions, joint society events, sport activities. We offer students a chance to meet architects, theorists, writers and to enhance relationships with other students and staff. We are an established community with a rich history and local and national recognition that welcomes anyone to join and take advantage of the wonderful things we have to offer!
The aim of our socials is to cater to our students wishes and timetable. We treat socials as time to wind down and conncet with others, whether that be a wild fancy dress social or a chilled movie with a few beers! We also emphasise the importance of a work life balance with the opportunity for students to come on group runs and take part in our sporting events. We celebrate the years success at the Annual End of Year PARCS Ball which is certainly the highlight of the social calendar!
Throughout the year we host a fortnightly lecture series during which we invite architects, theorists, designers, writers and staff to talk about their projects, agendas and interests. This aims to inspire members own research and projects which has proven very successful! During the year we offer students the chance to enter competitions, ranging from an ice breaker at the beginning of year to silly and more competetive ones.
The PARCS committee members for 2021/22 are: Jennifer Blake, James Bullen, Rhys Dunn, Connor Chapman, Daisy Grainger, Charlie Bromage, Tom Avery-Wright, Sam Brankin, Bradley Fewkes, Thomas Gowlett, Sam Anderson, Sam Yeowell, Dominic Ensor
