Crit:1

As the end of academic year approaches for most architecture students in the Northern Hemishphere, I would like to dedicate the next few weeks to writing about the infamous ‘crit’. Love it or hate, it seems like this perverse anthropological ritual is here to stay.

Many of us have stumbled until we finally got the hang of this so called the crit? The purpose of it and importance of it and the relevance of it i the architectural education. I am not or am I against this 200years old tradition of assessing student’s work, nay rather I would like to explore it further and hopefully to bring out what could be the relevance of it in the digital age.

There’s a lot of advice about preparation and what it entails, sites such as Portico, First in Architecture site, a jounal and a book called The Crit can be a good resource to those wishing to know more or have an alternative view about.
