An incomplete list of all UK & RoI architecture Summer Shows 2013

As a Lecturer on a relatively new BA(Hons) Architecture degree, it seemed like a good idea to recommend that our first cohort of students take time over the summer vacation to seek out some of the summer shows of the other architecture courses, departments, faculties and schools around the country. So, being a complete sucker and not wanting to deal with my in-tray, here are the beginnings of a complete list of all architecture summer shows in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

You’re welcome.

Please don’t copy this list, but feel free to link, share, tweet and recommend it far and wide. Schools are listed by the location of their show (Cambridge, for instance, are only exhibiting in London this year) – first by region or country then alphabetically by city. London is given prominence at the top of the list not because their schools of architecture are any good, but because that’s where you’re most likely to tick off as many shows as possible in one day. I’m building this off the RIBA’s list of validated or validation candidate courses plus the five schools in the RoI. Please let me know if I’ve missed one out.

You will see this list has many gaps. Please help me out by dropping me a line in the comments to tell me about the precise dates, times, venues and online info for forthcoming shows. I will update as often as I can, most likely once a day. This is revision #16 Friday 31 May 2013, 07:30..

Many thanks to all the students and faculty members who have helped me compile this list. Additional thanks to Aideen McCole, whose blog lists all the art, architecture and design shows happening across Ireland and Scotland this summer. Since first publishing this list on 9 May, Building Design magazine have also published their own comprehensive listings, available here.

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for the information provided here. Please check directly with respective institutions before setting out or buying those gnarly non-refundable train tickets.
