On Thursday 6th October 2011 five students from the MA gave presentations on their research at the MA A+U Colloquium 2011. I was invited to present my research - "The Architecture of the Profession" - along with Preeya Vadgama ("The Survival of Cities"), Carrie Bayley  ("Tracing Urban Exchange"), Jack O' Reilly ("The Phoenix Effect") and Kathryn Timmins ("The Local City").

The audience was mostly made up of the new academic year's MA students (2011-12) and gave them an opportunity to see the diverse range of projects produced last year in more detail.
