In June 1921, Cambridge University formally established an Examination in Architecture for the BA degree, with the first examinations happening the following year in 1922.

One hundred years on, we would like to invite you to join us on Saturday 9 July 2022 to Celebrate 100 years of Architecture at Cambridge in Scroope Terrace, Trumpington Street.

From 10am Faculty will be open all morning with an exhibition of past and present students’ work and tours of the faculty buildings including the new state-of-the-art digital fabrication laboratory.
2 – 4.30pm Presentation in the Architecture Lecture Room to celebrate our centenary and look back at students’ work through the decades. An interval with tea and biscuits will be at 3pm.
4.30pm Champagne and strawberries in the Faculty Garden

We wish to see your student work

In preparing to celebrate this occasion, we realised that no student exhibition catalogues were produced before 1983. We therefore encourage you to send us pictures of your work, a short description of your project and all your memories of the teachers and students from your time at Cambridge so that we may create an archive of student work through the ages. Your collaboration in this project would be much appreciated.

On 9 July, representatives will present a retrospective from each decade, charting 100 years of architectural teaching, research, work and memories. If you wish to nominate yourself or someone else as a student representative, please contact Marisa.Grove@aha.cam.ac.uk or tel: 01223 332957.

Please send your student work electronically to Marisa.Grove@aha.cam.ac.uk

Following the centenary event, the Faculty Library will manage these archives and records for future reference and research.
