We are Westminster Architecture Society (WAS), the voice for all students in the School of Architecture. Throughout the academic year, WAS aims to host a number of events which help to enrich the student experience such as student debates, lectures from internal and external guests, and other types of celebratory events. WAS is a co-founder of the London Architecture Schools Collective (LASC), which aims to unify the ideas of the various Schools of Architecture across London. MegaCrits are an example of what WAS and LASC can do to create change within the architectural community.
We aim to bring students from all ends of the spectrum together, sharing the diverse knowledge that we have. Students all have a wealth of knowledge and we try to bring people together to share this. Debates are an event in which we have made this possible.
Most importantly, we want to make our uni life fun, and that can be from any way possible including the events mentioned. We are always open to new ideas and would love to expand so come and join!
