The plan to start an international school of architecture in Prague, which originated in a group of people around the architects Martin Roubík (1949–2008) and Regina Loukotová in 2005, now becomes reality after the conferral of state consent and accreditation by the Ministry of Education. The school was conceived as truly international – with faculty members hailing from or having extensive experience from abroad, international student community and international best practice teaching methods. Approximately 60 students in one year will have a place to study in the school’s unique premises in Veletržní palác. Its programme and size makes the school a welcome addition to the portfolio of options for prospective students of architecture in the Czech Republic. ARCHIP is however the only such school to offer the baccalaureate programme in English.
SPACE ARCHITECTURE – PUBLIC LECTURE: In September 2010 international authorities were welcomed from the field of space architecture to ARCHIP’s premises in Veletržní Palace. Space architect Tomáš Rousek, now working for NASA presented the complex issues of sending man into space, extended space journeys and human settlement on other planets.
GAUDEAMUS EDUCATION FAIR: At the beginning of November, ARCHIP was introduced for the first time at the annual international higher education fair in Brno. Architecture was presented in a special way – as a creative process, in a minimal area of 2 m x 1 m. Magazine boxes from recycled paper, the “paper bricks” were arranged forming different objects.
ARCH. MARTIN ROUBÍK – EXHIBITION IN ALEXANDRIA: In the beginning of December, there was an exhibition dedicated to the Czech architect Martin Roubík presented at the famous Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Martin Roubík initiated the plans to establish ARCHIP.
