The BIG CRIT is the most anticipated event in The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment calendar and this year it takes place on Friday the 18th of May.

The event marks the end of the academic year by celebrating some of the best work produced by students from 1st year to Final year and uses the work as a vehicle for broader discussion around the theory and practice of Architecture. The BIG CRIT is open to staff, students and members of the public and is free of charge. This year we welcome guest critics Bruno Silvestre, Penny Lewis, Mary Arnold-Forster, Colin Harris, Ben Addy, Robin Webster, Professor Neil Gillespie and Professor Alan Dunlop to the panel.

In addition to the main event, this year sees the launch of a new initiative – a Question time event to give the opportunity for students and members of the public to pose questions directly to the BIG CRIT panel for discussion on the eve of the main event. Dissecting Architecture will take place in the Anatomy Rooms in Aberdeen, and questions should be submitted along with registration on website link
