Welcome To Our Architectural And Design Students Assembly

Introduction

The European Architecture Students Assembly (EASA) is a platform for an exchange of ideas and knowledge for European students of architecture. This is achieved primarily by the EASA – Summer Assembly and also by the SESAM – Small European Students of Architecture Meeting, and the INCM – Intermediate National Contact Meeting. Easa is not an established organization but a non-political and non-profit network aimed at bringing people together. The essence of the easa, since its beginning in Liverpool in 1981, is maintained by the ‘easa spirit’ – easy to feel but difficult to describe. In the UK, it’s represented by easa.uk, through UK National Contacts.

Aims

Easa is a practical network for communication, meeting, and exchange. Here architecture students can discuss their ideas, work together and exchange their experiences concerning architecture, education or life in general. By holding assemblies in different countries we have the chance to discover their cultural, historical, and environmental background. By exploring new dimensions of communication, reflection and presentation we can achieve a new perspective of dealing with the architectural profession. The aim of the easa is for those who participate to have an extraordinary experience.

Theme

Each easa – summer assembly has a theme. It is the starting point for our common adventure. An adventure that gathers different cultures and ideas of architecture. It has to be strong, powerful and generating the project.

History

EASA was established in 1981, when students of architecture from Liverpool invited their fellow students from Europe to come and help them solve problems in their city. About 300 students gathered to work on the theme ‘starting up the EASA experience’. Since then there have been assemblies in different countries with 400 to 500 participants each year [year, place, theme]:
