The Source Programme

The Source Programme has been set up for all Master students. The programme consists of weekly lectures and workshops by internationally renowned experts. The content of these lectures and workshops will be in keeping with the research themes within the three research programmes. Each year DAE will be organising a public symposium on a theme which will be relevant to both the profession and the world. We will be regularly publishing Source publications, related to the research programmes and the lecture programme. External experts will be contributing to these publications alongside DAE tutors and students.

Mon Oncle (“My Uncle”) by the French filmaker Jaques Tati, is a 1958 comedy film, that is focused on the contrast between postwar society and modern architecture. Some scenes reminded me that a slow attitude has a deeper human value in my life. For instance just watching that recurring shot where the crumbled brick wall borders the old-time, lively street to the new, sterile concrete apartment complex blocks.
